To meet the unique needs of each family, The Arc’s Family Support Program offers a variety of services

Educational Opportunities

The Arc offers training workshops that provide a variety of information and resources. Recent topics have included sensory success, turning 18 in VA, autism, and ADHD. In addition, The Arc sponsors the annual Circle of Support Conference, an all-day event that offers a keynote speaker, workshops in three sessions, exhibitors and vendors, on-site childcare, and much more for a reasonable registration fee. The conference is usually held on the 1st Saturday in November.

Information and Referral

Questions about Medicaid waivers, attorneys, special education law, or other topics can be answered by calling the Family Support Coordinator at The Arc, who can provide information on where and how to find the answers to these questions.

Other Services

Through partnerships with other agencies and individuals, we are able to offer chair yoga, special needs trusts consultations, and provide answers about special education.
