Celebrating 40 Years of Programs for Individuals with Disabilities

This year, we’re celebrating 40 years of serving individuals with disabilities! In 1974, the Special Programs Division was created in response to a grassroots community effort.

Over the years, programs and services have expanded to include therapeutic recreation programs, inclusion services, facility accessibility and much more. In celebration of our 40th anniversary, join us for a host of exciting activities throughout the year.

fantastic friday event M-NCPPC invites Prince George's County residents with disabilities to participate in the full array of classes, programs, and special events. The Special Programs Division provides Therapeutic Recreation Programs and Services for county residents with disabilities.

This refers to individuals whose disability affects one or more major life activities and includes, but is not limited to, individuals who are enrolled in special education centers, resource classes, diagnostic centers, and vocational programs.

The Department of Parks & Recreation also offers Inclusion Services for individuals with disabilities. These services are provided to enable people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in any registered program or event that is offered by M-NCPPC.
