Inclusion Services for Park District Programs

Inclusion services are designed to provide the least restrictive environment while providing the maximum opportunity to participate in regular park district programs. There is no charge for WDSRA’s support. To register for services, simply indicate that special accommodations are needed on the park district registration form. Two-week advance notice is requested for inclusion support.
