Recreation Inclusion Minor
The Americans with Disability Act mandates that agencies offering several types of recreation programs must accommodate people with disabilities. The Inclusive Recreation minor addresses these concerns. These agencies include those that fit in the following categories: sports complexes, outdoor recreation, golf, boating and fishing facilities, amusement parks, and aquatic facilities.
The following majors may be interested in declaring an Inclusive Recreation minor:
- Recreation Management
- Special Education
- Adapted Physical Education
- Physical Education Teaching
- Sports Management
The Inclusive Recreation minor is not a comprehensive therapeutic recreation curriculum. Nor is it intended to lead toward national certification. The Inclusive Recreation minor is academic preparation to assist other professionals who are interested in providing inclusive recreation programs.
