Education Advocate of the Month

Education Advocates of the Month Archive

As an organization founded by families, The Arc of New Jersey is always proud to honor individuals who support a loved one with an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD). Family members play a vital role in the lives of children with IDD, often becoming advocates for education, inclusion, and services. Every month, we will feature a parent or family member who has shown incredible advocacy skills related to special education. If you know someone whose special education advocacy deserves some recognition, contact Michael Pearson Jr. at
