The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is an evidenced-based program that promotes and strengthens secure parent-child relationships. Research supports that children with secure parent-child relationships tend to solve problems on their own, have higher self-esteem, feel less anger at their caregivers, and worry less about the future.

  • A Forum on Financial Planning for People with IDD

    December 15, 2020  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    https://thearc-org.zoom.us/webinar/register/9016056362773/WN_9OvLQTtYR4-k-5oKQZIg4g?fbclid=IwAR3ddu-VwPqJaZluS-Jy8jx5S1rRCEN2ZHtL1-PxYVFLNe-gmaa7SdoiQG0

    The ability to save is crucial in securing a life plan for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who often rely on public benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, and housing and food assistance to pay for things that they need to live in the community. However, many public benefits have very strict limits on how much money you can have to qualify and keep the benefits. How do people know what public benefits they are eligible for? How can people save to buy the things they want and need when they have so little money to start with? What are special needs trusts and ABLE accounts, and when should people have one? While our panel of experts will not be able to provide advice on anyone’s individual situation, they will provide an overview of these important issues, provide helpful resources, and be available to answer your questions. Come learn how people with IDD can plan for their financial future.

    Access Note: This webinar will be closed captioned.
