The Inclusion Team
The "Inclusion Team" is aligned under the Division of Therapeutic Recreation. The Inclusion Coordinator and an Inclusion Specialist provide the primary structure for the Inclusion Team within the Division. Both staff working to promote the efforts of inclusion are Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists (CTRS). Supplemental support includes part-time staff who also provide inclusion support assistance. The ultimate goal of the Inclusion Team is to assist participants with disabilities participating in existing programs.
The Inclusion Team also extends beyond the Inclusion Coordinator and Inclusion Specialist. Inclusion efforts would not be successful without the cooperation and dedication of our community center staff who serve children with disabilities within their programs. Success has also been achieved through proactive parenting, collaboration with the school systems and community service agencies.
The Inclusion Team strives to excel in seven key components in the delivery of inclusion services.
