Abstract: With new technological advances and disability legislation, people with disabilities are more interested in participating in community recreation programs than ever before. Many individuals, however, are unable to participate because of inadequate skills and lack of support. Community recreation staff can be instrumental in the successful transition and integration of people with disabilities from hospitals or school programs to their communities. For people with disabilities, graduating from special education classes or being discharged from the hospital begins a difficult process of adjustment. Community support is important for successful integration.
