Specialized Recreation Services
Specialized Recreation Services offers three social clubs for individuals with developmental disabilities. The purpose of these clubs is to encourage the development of appropriate leisure/social skills and to perpetuate friendships.
Anyone in eligible to join the club that is age appropriate. All activities are voted on by the club and provide an opportunity for individuals to participate in age appropriate social activities.
