BREC’s Focus of the Month- Adaptive Recreation

Weekdays 3pm-7pm
Weekdays 3pm to 7pm

Adaptive Recreation is a program that provides social and recreational services to all patrons with physical or developmental disabilities. Our goal is to offer a positive and supportive learning environment where individuals can explore new recreation skills, develop socialization skills through friendships and have opportunities to gain a sense of independence in their community. Inclusive recreation takes place when individuals of all abilities participate in a recreational activity together in an attempt to decrease barriers to leisure by utilizing adaptations and programming accommodations. The concept of inclusive recreation makes it possible for individuals to choose from a vast array of programs offered by BREC across the parish
