The Arc of Wichita County
…10-year-old Grady was born a micro-preemie (15 weeks premature) causing developmental delays, chronic lung disease as well as making him wheel-chair bound. Before attending the Arc Child Care Program, Grady’s socialization was very limited. Being around children like him has helped him understand he is not alone. He loves having a place to go everyday after school to see his friends and especially attending summer camp. The Arc has brought so much joy into Grady’s life and he brings joy to all who come to know him. His parents also greatly appreciate Parent’s Night Out!
The Arc exists to serve adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing a variety of programs and services. These programs include: a Day Hab for adults, social activities for teens and adults, summer camps for all ages, employment services, a self-advocacy group, a teen after-school transition program, and an integrated child care program for children with and without disabilities.
