The Special Needs Services Department offers weekday and weekend recreation prorgams for teens with special needs. Our unique programs allow our participants to access the same recreational activities as their peers by providing them with the support and accomodations they need to be successful. While the programs are specifically for teens with disabilities, our participants are simultaneously able to be included in the community as they utilize the JCC facilities and interact with other JCC members.
All new participants need to schedule an intake interview before registering. To schedule an intake interview, or for additional information about our programs, please contact:
