Improving the Quality of Lives

The Arc of Illinois, through a generous donation, has developed a new Assistive Technology Program. This program will fund, or partially fund, the purchase of assistive technology for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities who have received an evaluation/assessment from a qualified provider but the purchase is not subsidized by Medicaid, Medicare or Private Insurance.

Please note, if you are using a mobile device to view this video, you will need to have the YouTube app installed in order to view the donation card.

Our goal through the Assistive Technology Program, is to enhance and improve the quality of life for persons with intellectual/ developmental disabilities by providing opportunities for individuals to receive technology to help with education, employment, community living and independence.

Please help us to continue this wonderful program. When you click on the in the top right corner of the video to donate, The Arc of Illinois receives 100% of the donations! All of these donations will be used to purchase Assistive Technology devices and software for individuals with disabilities.
