The Arc FINDS (Family and Individual Needs for Disability Supports) is a free, online survey designed to tap into the knowledge and perspectives of individuals and families within the I/DD community, including self-advocates. 

Results from this confidential survey will provide greater understanding about what services are available, what gaps exist and what new supports are needed. 

The Arc is working in collaboration with the following organizations that in addition to chapters of The Arc are also assisting us in promoting The Arc FINDS study:

  • American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities;
  • Autism Society of America;
  • Best Buddies;
  • National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities;
  • National Council on Independent Living;
  • National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services; and
  • Office on Disability Employment Policy in the Department of Labor.

Thank you.
