Achieving Right Choices
The Arc of Jackson County launched a new program, Achieving Right Choices, for special education classrooms in Jackson County in 2022. Board President, Deb Schwartz, and self-advocate, Dylan Bridges, co-lead this program. It is designed to discuss feelings and emotions and healthy ways to respond. Deb reads a book while Dylan interacts with students by acting out the content of what Deb is reading. This is a fun and interactive program. At the end of the school year, students will be given information about The Arc of Jackson County so their families can learn about services.
