Review for The Arc of Aurora, Aurora, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Arc staff helped keep my son in school when Cherry Creek Schools wanted to expell him for his autism and developmental delays in middle school. The staff went to meetings with me and explained laws to school staff. They found a school that matched his needs and kept in school. They supported us in IEP meetings and he was able to graduate eventually. My son loves bowling and he was able to join others who made friends and help each other and have fun. Due their assistance he ended up going to Arapahoe Community College, not being expelled for disabilities he was born with in the 7th grade. I have been so grateful also as they battled Developmental Pathways who tried to say he was not eligible for their help as autism, developmental delays are not something you are born with. Arc went to court to support him and got him admitted for assistance. I am so grateful that I volunteer now for Arc.
