If your child with special needs is interested in programs not offered in the special recreation section of our brochure, the Recreation and Parks Department encourages and supports inclusive programming for a variety of programs: dance, athletics, early education, etc. Please indicate on your registration form if a 1:1 aide is needed to help make your child's experience successful. Please fill out details specific to your child's 1:1 needs.
Once registration is confirmed, please contact Barb Rhodes, Special Recreation Program Coordinator, at 708-403-6202 to discuss your child's needs.
An assessment will be completed by the Special Recreation Staff and a 1:1 staff will be provided. In the event that a 1:1 aide is not available, the Special Recreation staff will notify you immediately. Failure to register first may result in a program filling to capacity without placement being possible.
