Summer is approaching and we want to get outside and have fun. 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, miniature horses 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.
