Summer Inclusion Program ~ Deadline: May 31st
If your child receives special education services in school or requires any accommodations in programs, he/
she may qualify for free support. Our therapeutic recreation specialist will work with your family to ensure the
appropriate accommodations are being made, and our qualified support staff will work with your child as needed
in the various programs that he/she may attend in order to provide your child with a rewarding and fun experience.
Our therapeutic recreation specialist, support staff and program directors will work as a team to modify activities
and/or equipment, provide emotional and behavioral support and facilitate social interaction so that all children
can participate to their fullest potential. This summer we will be implementing a group inclusion model
and 1:1 support will be granted only on an as-needed basis, pending assessment by the therapeutic
recreation specialist. Support staff as well as a sensory friendly indoor space will be available for quiet
breaks at Club Simonds.
In order to accommodate with a sufficient number of staff members, the deadline to notify us for summer
program support is May 31. If we are not notified by May 31, additional support services cannot be guaranteed.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
