The Arc of South Norfolk

Our mission is to advocate for and provide supports and services to people diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to their families.
Autism & Law Enforcement Education Coalition
 
The ALEC Program trains First Responders (Fire, Police and EMS personnel) on autism spectrum disorders and the best practices when involved in a crisis situation with someone diagnosed with autism. The ALEC Program has been in existence since 2003, and the trainers are First Responders who have a loved one diagnosed with autism. First Responders hear from a colleague who has the professional knowledge of the field, as well as the personal experience of having a loved one diagnosed with autism. project reportread updates from the field

Fitness with Friends! for People with Autism
 
Being active within the community is not always easy for people with Autism.

Activities include, but are not limited to: hiking at local/state parks, bowling groups, the creation of kickball/softball leagues, cycling project reportread updates from the field
