To ensure appropriate accommodations are met, participants in need of accommodations/adaptations must register at least two (2) weeks in advance of a class or program start date. Upon registration, individuals requesting modifications or auxiliary aids/services shall provide the program specialist for recreation accessibility with notice that they seek accommodations. The participant (or guardian) can do this by checking “YES” on the registration form stating that they require special accommodations. The accommodation notice allows Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department time to evaluate and find the appropriate assistance.
Questionnaires will be sent to participants/guardians to ensure diligence of accommodations, safety, and effectiveness of program design. These questionnaires must be completed before aide assignments and/or modifications can be implemented and prior to participation in any adaptive programs. Ongoing communication with staff and the participant’s family members is encouraged.
