LifeAbility Talks are fun, free, interactive discussions designed to strengthen the abilities of self-advocates with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The talks are led by experienced self-advocates who cover topics that promote more independent, satisfying lives. Oh, and they’re also really fun!

Past topics include:

  • Communication -  Learn how to get more out of life through good communication.
  • Being Safe in the Community - Build your confidence being out in the community and avoid being the target of a crime.
  • Health & Wellness -  Is good health all granola and no fun? Not at The Arc!

Upcoming Training Dates

  • LifeAbility Talk: Travel

    You don’t need a plane ticket or a passport to experience other places. In fact, there are lots of ways to see the world without even leaving your seat. At our upcoming Talk, we will take three “journeys” together: exploring a tropical paradise, rafting down a mountain river, and touring the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, all in one day! On top of that, we’ll have Virtual Reality headsets available for attendees to experience different destinations through VR. These headsets have been graciously donated by Virtual Reality Rental. To learn more about their company, please visit

    If you would like to travel with us and have a great time, come to The Arc’s office on Wednesday, January 23rd from 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM. We will provide a lunch inspired by our three journeys. We look forward to seeing you and hearing about YOUR travel experiences, too.

    ALL SEATS ARE ALREADY FILLED FOR THIS SESSION. Please contact Valerie at 303-232-1338 or for more information.
