Program Symbols Key

Minimum/Maximum

New Program

Programs with this symbol are new offerings.

Important Information

This symbol indicates important information.

Each program blurb includes a minimum and maximum number of participants (Min/Max). When the maximum number of participants is reached, the program typically closes. When the number of participants registering for a program is less than the minimum, the program is usually cancelled. Planning programs for a minimum and maximum number of participants helps FVSRA plan for staffing and transportation. Ability Groupings

Pick-Up/DropOff Sites

No Transportation

Programs with this symbol have pick-up/ drop-off sites (residents only). Pick-up/ drop-off site abbreviations are listed in each blurb. It is extremely important to complete the pick-up/drop-off column when filling out the registration form; this lets FVSRA staff know who will need transportation. If the column is left blank, FVSRA staff will assume that a participant has another means of transportation for that program. Programs with this symbol have no transportation available.

Program participants are grouped according to suggested age and ability levels within each program. Staff to Participant Ratios Programs are staffed according to the needs and abilities of participants, as well as the nature of a particular program. One-to-one assistance is offered for participants when staff deems necessary. Completion of the participant’s Annual Information Form helps program leaders plan for programmatic staffing needs. Suggested Programs

Door to Door

Programs with this symbol have Door to Door transportation (residents only), which is offered to individuals with no other means of transport available. The rate is $2/way and is paid at the time of the ride. A 10 ride punch card may be purchased for $20. For additional information on the punch card please call the FVSRA office.

Sensory Integration Program

Programs with this symbol have been planned for abilities including children on the Autism Spectrum, with ADHD, with learning disabilities and other Sensory Integration Disorders. These programs have trained staff using schedules, supported communication and structured teaching techniques. Visuals are with Boardmaker or other picture icons.

Bring Spending Money

Programs with this symbol may require that additional money be brought for the purchase of a meal, movie ticket or souvenirs.

Fit for Life

Programs featuring this symbol have been designed as part of a healthy, active lifestyle. These programs will have a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity and/or healthy food options.

Read program “blurbs” included within this brochure carefully. Blurbs include information about program goals and suggested abilities. However, FVSRA will make reasonable accommodations for any individual who desires to participate in a program not suggested for his or her age group or ability level. Contact the FVSRA Outreach Coordinator with specific questions about abilities and appropriateness of particular programs. Americans with Disabilities Act FVSRA complies with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and will make reasonable accommodations to enable people with disabilities to participate in and enjoy recreation programs. Questions or concerns about compliance can be addressed with Executive Director, Carolyn Nagle, at (630) 907-1114 or cnagle@fvsra.org.

The assessment information will be communicated with staff to improve service delivery and program development

Please label all participants’ belongings. FVSRA is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please contact the FVSRA office/leader if the participant will be absent from a program.

Adhere to scheduled pick-up and drop-off program and transportation times. Cooperation is appreciated. Personal Expectations Participants need to wear appropriate attire for program participation (i.e. for athletic/ fitness programs comfortable clothing and tennis shoes need to be worn). If there are questions about the type of attire participants should wear, please contact the office. Participants need to have clean, dry clothing. No bowel/bladder problems upon arrival, at the transportation location or program. If this is a concern, extra clean clothing, clean-up supplies and Depend garments—or similar items—must be sent with the participant.

Registration Waiver IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The Fox Valley Special Recreation Association (FVSRA) is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. The FVSRA continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants and parents/guardians of minors registering for this program/activity must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreational activities. You are solely responsible for determining if you or your minor child/ward are physically fit and/or skilled for the activities contemplated by this agreement. It is always advisable, especially if the participant is pregnant, disabled in any way or recently suffered an illness, injury or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any physical activity. For questions regarding refunds, please review the FVSRA Refund Policy, located in the brochure as well as on the FVSRA website.

WARNING OF RISK

Participants must understand that certain risks, dangers, and injuries due to acts of God, inclement weather, slipping, falling, equipment failure, in supervision, premises defects, and all other circumstances inherent to recreational activities/programs exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the FVSRA to guarantee absolute safety.

Atlanto-Axial Instability (AAI) Atlanto-Axial Instability Condition (AAI), which allows increased mobility of the first and second neck bones, is oftentimes present in individuals with Down Syndrome. For the safety of FVSRA participants, individuals with Down Syndrome will not be allowed to participate in activities such as diving, the butterfly stroke in swimming, tumbling, gymnastics, the high-jump, equestrian sports, soccer and others which could potentially injure the neck area unless a doctor’s note, stating that the individual is free of AAI, is submitted to FVSRA. An X-ray by a doctor is necessary to determine if the condition is present.

FVSRA has implemented these transportation procedures to ensure participants ride safely in FVSRA vehicles. All passengers must be sitting in seats or wheelchairs with belts securely fastened. The driver will not proceed until all seat belts are fastened. All wheelchairs must have brakes that are in good working order and must be able to stop the chair from moving. The FVSRA drivers will assist participants to and from their homes, but driveways and walks must be clear of debris and obstacles. Staff will not enter homes. FVSRA staff are responsible for determining whether or not a participant can be transported safely. If it is determined that it would be dangerous to transport an individual, the driver may refuse to transport that person. Persons riding in Amigo-type wheelchairs must transfer into a van seat and must use a seat belt. Individuals using tri-wheelers must transfer into a bus seat as tri-wheelers cannot be safely tied down in vehicles. Persons unable to be in a house alone should have someone meet the van at the designated time of return. FVSRA cannot wait more than 10 minutes due to the demanding van schedule. FVSRA reserves the right to refuse to transport individuals. Please recognize that these policies have been developed to ensure the safety of everyone riding in FVSRA vehicles. Cooperation is greatly appreciated. Car Seats To ensure the safety of young participants while traveling in the FVSRA vehicles, parents of any child under 8 years are requested to provide a car seat for use on the vans. Please contact Mike Younie, Senior Manager, at (630) 907-1114 or mikey@fvsra.org with any questions.

Please Don’t Be Late! Late Pick-Ups are Costly to All! FVSRA makes every effort to run all programs and transportation schedules on time. It is expected that participants be dropped off and picked up, both before and after programs, on time as well. Late pickups of participants following a program cause a ripple effect throughout the transportation schedule. Please be considerate of all participants, parents, guardians, group home staff and FVSRA staff by being on time. If an emergency should arise which impacts timeliness of pick-ups and drop-offs, please contact FVSRA staff via vehicle cell phone numbers (listed on this page). In the event parents/guardians/caregivers are late for pick-ups, a one-time warning will be given. A second late occurrence will result in a late fee charged as follows: • After a 10 minute grace period, a $10 fee will be charged for every 10 minutes late, or portion thereof. • The participant will be invoiced and outstanding late fee balances will prohibit registration for new programs. Please help FVSRA run on time and be respectful of everyone’s busy schedules. Thank you.
