The Arc of Grays Harbor's Community Liaison Program is designed to support families who have a student with an IEP or 504 plan. The program provides trained volunteers who can attend meetings at the school and explain the community resources and services that are available.
The Arc has trained volunteers called Community Liaisons who explain the community resources and services available to students with disabilities and their families, especially those students who are in transition to adult services.
Community Liaisons can also attend IEP meetings when available upon invitation by the student, a family member, The Arc, or a local school district. During the meeting they are able to provide information about local services available, appropriate to the student's age.
They do not provide educational, parenting, or legal advice to the school or the parents. Community Liaison services can be provided either virtually or in person.
