The Arc of Wichita County
…10-year-old Grady was born a micro-preemie causing developmental delays, chronic lung disease as well as making him wheelchair bound. Before attending the Arc Child Care Program, Grady’s socialization was very limited. He is now very social and loves to play with his friends as well as the staff. In addition to the childcare program, Grady also attends the monthly parent’s night-out social event and the yearly summer camp. Grady is also the reason why The Arc began an after-school transportation program. He found it difficult to ride the bus for such a long route and now he enjoys The Arc staff picking him up from school every day. The Arc has brought so much joy to Grady’s life and he brings
joy to all who come to
