News & Announcements

The Arc of Philadelphia and SpArc Services had a great semester hosting Nina and Tierney, students in the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program at Jefferson University. Nina and Tierney got involved with our organization through our HealthMeet program, an initiative of The Arc of Philadelphia that connects  with students in the health professions to teach them about inclusive medicine and working with people with disabilities.

We sat down with Tierney and Nina to hear more about what they learned during the semester and how they applied their occupational therapy curriculum to projects and activities designed for program participants.

Recently we had a Q&A with Mervin Giddins, Job Developer/ Job Coach. Get to know "Merv" by reading the full session.

The Arc of Philadelphia is pleased to announce that the William Penn Foundation will be the lead supporter of our 2021-2022 Parent IEP Training program.
