Making friends within inclusive community recreation programs

Written Material

This article presents strategies for promoting friendships between people with and without disability as they jointly participate in inclusive community recreation programs. With recreation programs in a constant state of change, the 'zero exclusion' approach is favoured. This involves the creation of new inclusive programs as the best way to facilitate social inclusion and acceptance. Family members are encouraged to work in collaboration with care providers in enhancing friendships and social inclusion.
