“The Arc” is NOT an acronym. Please use “The Arc of Monmouth, ”not “The ARC” and never “ARC.”

NJ's Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) recently published their newest timeline for 2018 Graduates who will be aging out of the school system at the end of this school year. The DDD enrollment/eligibility process can seem overwhelming, but planning as early as possible for the future will help eliminate some of the stress. There are many resources available. We encourage families and young adults with I/DD to take advantage of transition fairs, workshops, and visit for many online resources. As always, please reach out to The Arc of Monmouth for all of your transition questions. We are happy to guide and support you through this process.
