ADAPTIVE & INCLUSIVE RECREATION:
The following program has been designed to help participants who are challenged get the most out of their leisure experience! These programs have been modified to provide a safe and supportive environment to learn and practice both program skills and personal skills. Peer mentors attend most programs to provide visual and social cues and to keep things fun. These and other supportive services are available to anyone who wishes to attend any of our other programs. For further information on supportive services, please call the Parks and Recreation Dept. at (203) 341-5087 to speak with the Inclusive Recreation Coordinator.
HOW TO GET INCLUDED:
Register for the recreation program. On the registration form under “special considerations,” request that the Inclusive Recreation Coordinator be contacted to provide supportive services. The Coordinator will then contact you and the program instructor to gather information and provide reasonable supportive services for that program. You may begin the program with the supportive services in place. The Inclusive Recreation Coordinator may periodically observe the program to provide support and to answer any questions.
Cycle Club at the Beach!
Come to the Compo Beach with your bike and take a spin! This is an inclusive program for children with a disability who would like to learn to ride a bicycle and/or have open space to ride. Children must have a bicycle and helmet. Together with Occupational Therapist, Barbara Greenspan and our support staff, kids will have an opportunity to ride in a safe closed off area of Compo Beach and practice their cycling skills. Peer mentors will be invited to participate as well as Staples High School volunteers - a.k.a. SLOBS!
