After school program for special needs youth and adults that provides a fun, creative environment to extend the day’s learning and late afternoon care until parents get off work.

Arc Afternoons packs fun into after-school hours in a safe, nurturing environment.

Arc has decades of experience helping youth and adults with special needs feel secure as they learn and socialize. Our programs creatively use a recreational environment to increase a student’s independence, improve social skills and reinforce recommended developmental plans. We offer a student-teacher ratio that helps ensure students receive personalized attention. Our teachers communicate progress and challenges to parents to ensure after-school activities from 2:30 p.m. to as late as 5:00 p.m. weekdays will reinforce what will most help the student. Arc Afternoons is currently available at The Arc’s Plano center. To inquire or enroll, write us at
