Get On Board with The Arc

Here's an organization that offers a variety of services to adults and children with developmental disabilities in the Baton Rouge, LA area: The Arc Baton Rouge serves children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The organization's goal is to advocate for the rights of those with disabilities as well as encourage and improve community participation in the area. The Arc has four different service areas:

• Children's Services: Kids will go through therapy sessions in their natural environment that is a part of an Early Intervention program • Vocational Services: Individuals are given the assistance needed to earn a paycheck, pay taxes and be contributing members of society through job training in local businesses or through job crews • Support Services: Direct care is provided to people in their home or when needed at the home facility. Assistance is also provided for people to live either with their families or on their own • Inclusive Recreation: The Arc works with local agencies and individuals to encourage recreational activities for those with or without disabilities of all ages. The organization currently facilitates sports leagues for over 400 people.

In addition to the services it provides, The Arc also offers several programs. One of the programs being offered this summer is the "Splash Into Summer Swimming Program". The program will take place July 18, 2011 through July 28, 2011 at the LSU U-Rec pool from 3:45pm to 5:30pm. Programs participants will be taught basic water skills and provided with safety tips.
