Welcome to Double ARC
Persons affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) need the support of both family and professionals in order to live successfully. Double ARC provides education and support for parents whose child is struggling with the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure.
As leading strategists for providing the best possible education for children, Double ARC provides consultation and staff development opportunities so that educators, health care providers, and professionals in the judicial and social service arenas are equipped to support children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
Double ARC, sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame, serves children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and their families through education, intervention and advocacy.
Double ARC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame in 1992 to address the needs of children in the regular classroom whose behavior and academic challenges put them at risk for failure or suspension. It continues today to serve only children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
In 2006 Double ARC became the Ohio affiliate of NOFAS, the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. This positions Double ARC as part of the national efforts to bring awareness about the dangers of drinking alcohol during pregnancy to the national level and to seek services and funding that will benefit those affected and their families. This website is made possible through a grant from NOFAS.
