The Arc of Dauphin County helped us by attending IEP meetings and going over IEPs to ensure they are completed with the child’s best interest. They were able to point out deficiencies and missing information. They provided support when the school system failed to provide services or made an attempt to meet school agenda’s at the expense of my child.
The Arc of Dauphin County is important because not all parents understand what the schools obligations to special needs children are. They help ensure those obligations are being adhered to and they help parents to have a voice.
Having the Arc of Dauphin County helped to show that we were not alone. That we have knowledgeable people in the special education field in our corner.
They helped support my decisions and helped us fight for what we wanted and needed.
