The Arc of Central Alabama serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families through comprehensive and quality programming, advocacy efforts, education and awareness, all in an effort to ensure each person affected by IDD has the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential for the most independent life possible.
The Arc’s Early Intervention Program provides in-home speech, physical, and occupational therapy to infants, toddlers, and young children who present delays or intellectual disabilities. Training is also provided to families and care takers. Last year, 315 infants and young children were served through our H.O.P.E Program (Helping Others Through Parent Education). Of this number, 32 children made such progress that they no longer qualified for or needed intervention and sixty individuals transitioned into JCCEO Head Start programs. This service is available to all families who need services and is not based on income level. Families may self-refer, as well as be referred by pediatricians or by Child Find.
