On February 8, 1954, a group of 32 parents met to discuss a mutual problem. They each needed support and services for their child and then formed the Shawnee County Association for Retarded Children.
The association provided services to 24 children between the ages of 5 and 18 in six room house at 4600 SW 10th Street, Topeka. The salary for the first instructor was paid by the Junior League of Topeka.
