INCLUSION SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) provides accommodations to individuals with disabilities/ special needs, so that they may receive an equal opportunity to participate in programs offered citywide. How it Works 1. Choose the activity you would like to participate in, and then access the PP&R site to know where the activity is being offered. 2. Register for the activity. You can do this in person at a PP&R site, or online at When registering, let the person know you will need accommodations in order to participate in the activity (online, check the box.) 3. Once registered, please contact Inclusion Services at 503-823-4333. If this is your first accommodation through Inclusion Services, you will need to do a phone intake with a staff member. At the end of the phone intake, it will be determined whether an assistant will be needed on the first day of the activity to provide on-site support. Future assistance will be provided based on need. The inclusion staff will work with the instructor on how to support you and your individual needs. Important Details A general program may be adapted using auxiliary aids and services, but the basic structure of the program remains the same. Accommodations are made as needed, and can be flexible as well as creative. Participants need to register for activities that are intended for their birth age.
