Looking to have your family member participate in a true inclusive manner in recreational programs? More and more camps, instructional classes, sports, rec programs or fitness facilities are striving to become inclusive for individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities. Lisa Drennan, owner of MERGE Diverse Abilities Inclusion Consulting will share her unique insight into the philosophies and best practices for successful recreational community inclusion. Family members or direct support provider are welcomed to be part of the conversation exploring how to build a collaborative team with program providers, handling roadblocks when seeking to access programming, and your role in developing a strong relationship with coaches, instructors, or counselors of these recreation programs.
