News & Announcements

Recently we had a Q&A with Mervin Giddins, Job Developer/ Job Coach. Get to know "Merv" by reading the full session.

The Arc of Philadelphia is pleased to announce that the William Penn Foundation will be the lead supporter of our 2021-2022 Parent IEP Training program.

Read about SpArc Cultural Arts staff member, Fred Henzel, who is also a working artist in Philadelphia. He discusses his background in the arts, how he infuses the arts into his daily work, and what he's learned at SpArc.

On a beautiful spring day, participants at SpArc Services bounced from square to square of a winding path, designed like a giant board game. At each roll of the giant dice, participants would advance and get instructions for a new movement, activity, or prompt to speak. 

This activity was designed by Sarah and Anita, two Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) students from the Jefferson College of Rehabilitation Sciences at Thomas Jefferson University. Sarah and Anita spent their final semester in their Master’s program doing fieldwork with The Arc of Philadelphia and SpArc Services.
