Therapeutic Information
Programs and Services for Individuals with Disabilities

Find the right fit for your interest and needs!

Therapeutic Recreation programs are specifically designed for individuals with disabilities. We offer classes under Exercise and Movement, Leisure Skill Programs, and Aquatic classes. Additional programs for adults include Special Events and Weekend Adult Social Clubs. We offer age appropriate activities for youth and teens at specialized Summer Camps. The activities are planned to meet the interests of participants with appropriate participant-to-staff ratio in a structured setting.

Recreation Inclusion and Mainstreaming Opportuntities

Montgomery County Recreation is committed to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To facilitate inclusion, interpreters, large print or Braille, auxiliary aids, and services should be requested at the time of registration. To arrange services, accommodations, or support, just send us an email or call the Recreation office at 240-777-6870 and ask to speak with a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist.

Volunteers and Companions

Many individuals with disabilities request a mainstream companion as an accommodation. What is a Mainstreaming Companion? Companions provide additional assistance to facilitate the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in general Recreation Department programs. Most companions are trained volunteers who will assist with participation and integration into the program. Companions do not provide personal care. Placements are limited, and are not guaranteed, so early notification is essential.
