Moline, IL – During the cold weather season, we pull on our overcoats, mittens and hats to help brave the weather. Stepping out in frigid temperatures is bearable with the proper clothing and attire. Similarly, for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD, controlling their sensory inputs is an essential part to daily living, just like pulling on a protective barrier to winter temperatures, individuals with ASD need ways to manage these inputs.
The Arc is on the front lines to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support they need to be members of the community. In partnership with the Arc US, The Arc of the Quad Cities Area invites everyone to visit one of the most informative web pages to support answer questions about ASD at Autism Now (www.austimsnow.org). The Arc is the largest national community-based organization advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
