Introducing The [email protected] Online Resource Center
Since its inception, The Arc has been on the forefront of special education advocacy. Many chapters of The Arc provide individual advocacy services for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). However, academic achievement and graduation rates of students with I/DD continue to lag far behind their peers without disabilities, making advocacy efforts more important than ever. To aid in this effort, The [email protected] launched an Online Resource Center in December 2016.
The Online Resource Center has several sections, including the “Know Your Rights” section, which provides information about special education laws and the rights of students and their families in special education. The site also has a best practices section describing special education advocacy throughout our chapter network, as well as a resource directory to help students and their families find advocates in their state.
