One of the greatest challenges for families of adults with moderate to severe disabilities is finding a program that can meet the developmental, physical, and behavioral needs of their family member. The Arc offers community-based programs that provide a range of services needed to continue the level of learning these young adults experienced while in school.
8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS) provide home and community-based services as an alternative to an intermediate care facility for individuals with an intellectual disability or related conditions (ICF/IID).
Staff assist participants in organizing various services needed to achieve maximum levels of independence, including attendant care, specialized therapies, adaptive aids, minor home modifications, and respite care. Services are based on the individual’s unique needs and an individual plan of care (IPC) developed by the individual and the individual’s service planning team.
At The Arc, we know that in order to provide excellent services, you have to have a great team of staff. To that end, we constantly invest in staff training that will expand their toolkits to enable them to provide quality and innovative care to the individuals in our programs. We value a community of continuous learning and partner with subject matters experts who provide trainings on a variety of topics such as: basic medical supports, positive behavior supports, and emergency preparedness.
