Recreation, the ADA, Inclusive Programs
Lets Have Fun!

Summer is approaching. Let's get outside and have fun. On Tuesday, May 11th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EDT we will discuss ADA requirements and accessibility recommendations as they apply to recreation programs, summer camps, state and municipal parks, recreation trails, COVID and mask policies, safety policies, reasonable accommodations in programs, ensuring effective communication (such as providing sign language interpreters), service animals, and more. Special guest Laila Soleimani, the Outreach Coordinator for the Universal Access Program at the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, will discuss integrated and adaptive recreation programs and opportunities. The Zoom link will be sent one week and then one hour before the event. For questions and to request accommodations such as closed captioning, contact Kathy Gips at kgips@IHCDesign.org or 617-695-0085. Please request accommodations by May 6.
