Don’t See What You’re Looking For?

Although we do our best to provide timely and relevant information, it’s difficult to stay on top of ALL the topics and issues related to disability services. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for here in our resource library, click here to go to our Information & Referral Portal.
Using the portal, you can 1) Ask specific questions regarding your individual situation. An Arc employee will respond to your question and do their best to provide the information you’re searching for. You can also 2) suggest topics for guidebooks and information sheets not currently in the library. Much of what we have available is due to an individual request.
