Adaptive Recreation Programs by cities
Krista Schwartz while referring to the City of Scottsdale program states that "They will do a free evaluation of your child
to determine if an aide is required for any of their recreation programs. We enrolled our son in several of their summer
classes last year and were very pleased with the programs offered."
