Adaptive Programs

Adaptive Programs Overview

We offer a selection of inclusive programs, designed to meet a variety of ability needs. To ensure a fun and meaningful experience for everyone, we ask that your child meet the following requirements:

  • Interest in activity, and willingness to participate alongside peers.
  • Able to follow directions in a group setting with little redirection needed.
  • Participating children should be able to participate independently for most of the time. However, if 1:1 support is needed, a parent/caretaker can provide support and participate in class.

We are able to work with a variety of physical, intellectual, and sensory needs. If you have any questions about specific accommodations, please contact our Adaptive Program Director, Haley Tarase.
