Abstract: In today’s world of an ever-increasing number of wounded veterans, aging baby boomers, and children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities, a significantly larger number of individuals with disabilities are approaching public recreation providers for services essential for a good quality of life. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates not only that these underserved residents have access to recreation agencies, but that they have opportunities to participate alongside everybody else in the community.
