Recreation and Leisure Time

Recreation for people with disabilities is just as important as it is for their peers without disabilities. Access to the full range of recreational possibilities now exists in many communities, including vacation possibilities. Community recreational sites as well as the Internet can lead to exciting, person-centered possibilities. Research indicates that individuals with disabilities can become isolated as they grow older. Due to lack of mobility, income, and social networks, individuals with disabilities may have difficulty making the right friends and meeting the right people to assure a quality of life. Memberships in religious/cultural affiliations (e.g., church or synagogue), clubs, and recreational programs provide natural and ongoing support networks that can assist persons with disabilities in maintaining friendships throughout their life.279
