How to Register for Adapted Programs & Inclusive Services
- If you haven’t used adapted services before, please contact us at least four weeks in advance so that we can assess your needs.
- You will need to complete forms that staff will mail to you.
- Staff will schedule an intake interview with you and register you or your child into a confidential database to help match appropriate services and programs. You are then given an Adapted and Inclusive Services (AIS) membership.
- Once you have your AIS membership, you can register for Adapted Programs. Visit How to Register for Recreation Programs.
Please note: If requesting inclusive services, add your name to a waitlist.
Adapted Recreation Programs
Our specialized programs are for individuals with disabilities who want to be involved in recreational activities with other people who have similar interests, abilities and needs in a safe and positive environment. These programs are designed with smaller group sizes. To access Adapted and Inclusive programs you need an AIS membership. Please contact the district office to start membership process.
