Connect with Area Professionals
Our members include educators, therapists, other professionals and parents who care for Arkansans with disabilities. Members may attend our monthly UPHOLD meetings, serve on our scholarship committee and schedule one of our learning disability simulation workshops for their organizations, as well as receive our quarterly newsletters, connect with other professionals via our online membership directory and find other Arkansas service providers from our (coming soon!) online resource database. Additional professional development activities are being planned for 2015.
