When a child is diagnosed with a developmental disability, life changes for everyone in the family. Unique challenges are present requiring accomodations, perseverance and sacrifice in order to make life a fulfilling experience for the person with the disability. Advocacy comes from the heart and is instinctive to most families. Advocacy emerges put of knowledge and must be cultivated into a skill.
But sometimes families need help to become effective self-advocates. The educational, medical, and other service systems cam seem complicated and intimidating to families. This is the main reason the Mon-Arc of Monroe, Inc. is available today. The ARC offers the opportunity to learn, to be supported, to assist your family member in receiving what he/she needs, and to support others.
Advocacy is an ongoing effort and commitment, which begins at birth and is a necessary part of each family's life together. It is the ARC's promise to you to assist you in this process.
The Mon-Arc of Monroe, Inc. promotes the general welfare of all persons with developmental disabilities and their families through advocacy, counseling, education, and community program services.
