We believe in self-advocates! What is a self-advocate? A self-advocate is someone who shares their needs and wants! The goal of self-advocacy is for you to decide what you want and then develop and carry out a plan to help you get it.
With Texas continuing to be the lowest in the state for services for individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental disabilities, it is essential for the people this affects to be in front of representatives sharing the crisis in Texas and advocating for improvements.
Logan Sharp and her mom Laurie did just that! They have been speaking with representatives and advocating for improvements for Texans with I/DD.
During health and wellness, we discuss the importance of moving your body, the different ways, and how to track it! We popped on our step counters and tracked our steps on our walk to Starbucks.
At Starbucks, we learned about financial literacy through taxes and supply and demand.
The Arc of the Capital Area's Art & Education Program is vital to the community by providing post-secondary education. The state of Texas' reimbursement rates are so low that they do not cover half the program's cost, reimbursing just $25 daily. The Arc's Art Celebration helps us continue to provide this vital program to those who need it. Get your ticket today to The Arc's Art Celebration!
During our Art & Education Program, we teach and enhance independent living skills and health and wellness. After lunch, a walk helps us wake up, get some exercise, and see the community. We often stop at stores and discuss how to order a drink, financial wellness, and how to see if something is healthy! During one of these trips, a student shared they had never ordered anything themselves and were so proud of it! Being a part of the community helps the clients learn about how businesses operate and boost their communication skills and self-esteem.

We discuss mindfulness in all aspects of our services. Mindfulness helps us refocus and algin our energy into what we are doing! Use butterfly breath to calm big physical energy. The gentle wing movements will release energy from the body leaving it feeling relaxed. The deep breathing will also help to calm big emotional energy, like any anxiety or anger.
How to butterfly breath:
1. Close your eyes.
2. Stand with your feet slightly apart and your arms down at your sides.
3. As you begin to take a deep breath in, lift your arms out to the sides gently and slowly. Connect your arms with the breath and move them gracefully like they are light as air and flowy.
4. Lift your arms until the inhale is complete and then lower your arms back down while you exhale slowly through your mouth.
5. Repeat two more times
