Welcome to
The Arc-Dane County.

Over 70 years ago, a group of parents came together to fight for the educational rights of their children. Their efforts set in place the framework for the organization that would become the Arc-Dane County.  Today, we continue the work of those parents by advocating for educational, employment, residential, and social opportunities that help smooth life’s transitions.

Con Mas de 70 anos de servicio para personas con discapacidades intelectuales y de desarrollo.

Healthy Relationships & Sexual Health Education Classes.jpg

People with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities (IDD) are sexually assaulted at seven times the rate of people without disabilities. The Arc-Dane County is working with Opportunity Development Centers, Inc. to present evidence-informed and trauma-informed sexuality education class for high school students and adults with developmental disabilities. These educational opportunities will provide a place to learn about healthy relationships and open and safe communication about sexual health.
