The AWE/Arc, also known as the Smith Center, has been in existence since 1984. We serve adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities age 16 and older. We also have an adult residential program and an Early Intervention program. Our programs are under the supervision of the Alabama Department of Mental Health and we are a United Way Agency. Each of the individuals that we serve have Individual Support Plans and our classes concentrate on skills involved in activities of daily living, language, social skills, hygiene, self-help skills, and independent living skills. Our Early Intervention Program (E.I.E.I.O.) serves children from birth through age three with developmental delays. E.I.E.I.O. has referrals from CHILD FIND, doctors, health professionals, parents, and other agencies and can provide 16 different therapies for audiology to speech. Our Residential Program has four SCLH homes, three in Prattville and one in Millbrook, which can serve 12 individuals. These are teaching homes designed to be a transition step to independent living. The AWE/Arc strives to educate, nurture, and inspire its individuals to reach beyond their expectations, to participate fully in life's adventure.
