In 1950, parents of children with developmental disabilities band together to form The Association for Retarted Children, the forerunner of The Arc of today, to push for educational services and other opportunities for their children. As a result, more people with disabilities come into contact with general society.
At the time, most people with developmental disabilities are isolated in institution or private homes, receive little practical education and are largely unemployed. Assumed to be unable and uninterested in making choices related to their lives, people with developmental disabilities are rarely asked for their opinions.
