Wings for Autism

The programs are designed to alleviate the stress that families who have a child with autism or intellectual/developmental disabilities experience when flying. It provides families the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane.

Social Enrichment Programs

The Arc’s Social Enrichment program serves to integrate individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities into the community through relaxed, informal activities and events that promote peer socialization.

Dancing the Night Away

The Arc holds an annual Spring and Fall Socials. These dances draw hundreds of our clients and their caregivers for a night of music, dancing, food, and fun. It’s not unusual to see elaborate costumes and plenty of smiles at these events.

The Arc is constantly looking for new enrichment opportunities for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition to our participation in Special Olympics, we are looking for additional fitness and arts-focused activities for our clients.
