Education & Family Advocacy
Many things we take for granted become a bit more complicated when you have a child with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Whether you're navigating the school system, struggling with healthcare, looking for activities, or planning for your child's future care, parents and caregivers of children with I/DD have a steep learning curve.
Thankfully, The Arc's experienced education and family advocates are here to help. Armed with information you can trust, our advocates will support your development of the critical knowledge and skills that will help your child succeed.
How to get help.
To begin the advocacy process, use the button below to submit an advocacy request or call (303) 232-1338 to leave a message for your advocate. Requests are typically addressed within three (3) business days. Please view our Education & Family Advocacy Policy for the 18-19 school year.
During the initial contact which can be either a phone or e-mail exchange, our advocate will ask questions to get a full picture of your current needs. Once your immediate concerns have been addressed, the advocacy process ends. Should you need further assistance in the future, simply contact your advocate again.
