A Range of Services for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in the East Bay/Alameda County The Arc of Alameda County offers life skills education and employment services tailored to the needs and goals of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Those disabilities include: Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, epilepsy, autism, fragile x syndrome and similar disabilities.

Our clients set their own annual goals, often with input from their families. Dedicated Arc staffers – called Direct Service Providers – then work tirelessly to help clients achieve those personal goals. The Regional Center is the first place people with I/DD and their families need to go in order to get state-funded services such as those available through The Arc of Alameda County.

The Arc of Alameda County serves people with I/DD who live in Alameda County.
