Trainings and Resources

Navigating many aspects of the disability experience can be unfamiliar, overwhelming and isolating, but it doesn't have to be. As with most things, having access to clear, understandable, and trusted information can help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), and their families and caregivers cut through the noise and get their bearings. 

The Arc has developed a variety of in-person and self-guided training courses to help address common issues and concerns. 


Self-Guided Trainings

  • Introduction to key principles of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

  • There's a lot to consider as youth with I/DD prepare for adult life. These videos and resources will help you make sure that nothing is left to chance. 

  • Learn how the ABLE act creates tax-advantaged savings accounts for people with disabilities.

  • Learn about Colorado's Mandatory Reporting law and how it protects adults with I/DD. 

  • Learn how to understand the process of applying for Social Security


In-Person Training

  • A two-part series for parents and young adults seeking to understand their legal options when someone with I/DD reaches adulthood.
