The intent of the Special Needs Program is to expose children with special needs to a variety of activities in a structured and patient environment. High school students serve as volunteers for mutual exposure which allows for community building between high school students and students with special needs.
If you are interested in participating in any of our upcoming programs, contact Leon Morton. Leon Morton serves in the Special Ed Parent Teacher Organization.
Maplewood’s Recreation Department has recently joined the local TryCAN Program! TryCAN is a collaboration of Berkeley Heights, New Providence, Summit and other nearby communities that offers a comprehensive array of recreation programs for children with special needs or those who need special accommodations. No non-resident fees are involved and all are welcome.
