Ark-AHEAD was established as a statewide organization in 1995. A small number of disability services professionals in Arkansas had been members of the national AHEAD and had attended the national conference, but thought it would be helpful to build local resources within Arkansas. Many service providers in Arkansas are from small schools, and working with students who have disabilities is often only one of their functions. Often their experience and educational backgrounds are in other fields. Providing professional development opportunities to these professionals was a major impetus for the creation of this organization.
