Accommodations for people with disabilities 

WHAT IS INCLUSION?
Inclusion is the concept that people of all abilities can and should have the opportunity to recreate and interact together.

Inclusion is fostering an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate in the programs of their choice no matter what their abilities are. ALL classes offered in the Recreation Guide are available for Inclusion. And the City of Redmond does not limit the number of classes that anyone may register for.

People with disabilities are encouraged to register for any class that they wish to participate in, as long as they meet the general class requirements. These requirements include age, gender, and specific class pre-requisites.

WHAT IS AN ACCOMMODATION?
An accommodation is a modification to an activity or class that enables people with disabilities to full participate. Examples of accommodations include written class schedules, project instructions explained in alternate formats, smaller class ratios and one-on-one support. At least two weeks notice for all accommodations is requested so that the City of Redmond may successfully meet your needs.

WHY IS INCLUSION IMPORTANT TO THE CITY OF REDMOND?
Fostering an environment that is open to diverse populations and abilities today will empower citizens to build a better place for everyone to live and thrive tomorrow.

PERSONAL SERVICES
The City of Redmond is unable to provide accommodations for personal services such as feeding, dressing, and toileting. Participants that need assistance with personal services are encouraged to participate in Redmond programs. However, they will need to provide their own attendant for personal services. Please notify Inclusion Services about personal attendants so we can arrange transportation and admission to activities for the attendant. Personal attendants are not charged class registration fees, transportation fees, or admission fees while accompanying a paying participant.
