Are you looking for more opportunities for recreation and to extend the social circle of your loved one?

Join Family Empowerment and representatives from three local recreation programs that have had great success in creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities. 

Whole Children

Whole Children provides recreational, social and enrichment programs for children and teens of all abilities, including those with special needs. All classes have built-in skill-building components, whether it’s teaching the finer points of basketball, how to navigate the playground, or how to talk to friends.

Whole Children is a social/recreation center that welcomes families and students of all abilities, philosophies, and cultures. 

PRESENTER: Maggie Rice, Director of the Inclusive Community Center (ICC), home of Whole Children.
