Although these programs are recreational, there are many benefits that are inherent within each of the programs. They stress social interaction, self-direction, speech and language and community involvement. These recreational programs provide a safe environment, respite for parents and caregivers, and learning through a variety of classes. Staff and volunteers are there to assist each participant in getting the most out of each program they attend.
