of San Diego Provides Area with Quality Programs
Arc of San Diego has a rich tradition of developing quality programs
for children and adults with developmental disabilities. All of
the programs promote social, economic and personal independence.
The organization’s philosophy is that people with developmental
disabilities have unlimited potential and the right to equality
in 1951 by a determined group of people who felt they had to
“do something” for children with mental retardation,
Arc blends a long history of service with a national reputation
term, developmental disability, describes a number of conditions,
which permanently restricts an individual’s development.
State and federal governments differ in definition. California
identifies developmental disability as a diagnosis originating
before age 18, of one or more of the following conditions: mental
redardation, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and Dr. Pola Rosen, publisher
of Education Update, has been invited to deliver the keynote

the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
