What is a Mainstreaming Companion?

To accommodate special needs, individuals with disabilities may request a mainstream 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. Just send us an email or call the Therapeutic Recreation office at 240-777-6870 for more information and/or to request a companion.
