Program Modification and Inclusion Services

The City of Redmond strives to foster an environment that is open to diverse populations and abilities. The goal is to empower citizens to build a better place for everyone to live and thrive.

A Program Modification to an activity or class enables people with disabilities to fully participate in a program or event. Examples of accommodations include: interpretive services, accommodations for the visual or hearing impairment, written class schedules, project instructions explained in alternate formats, smaller instructor to participant ratios, and one-on-one support. Please provide 30 days’ notice for all recreation program accommodations, and other request so that the City of Redmond may successfully meet your needs.

Inclusion                                                      

Inclusion is cultivating an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate in the programs of their choice no matter what their abilities are. We encourage and support the participation of individuals that have disabilities in our programs.

People that have disabilities are encouraged to register for any class that they wish to participate in, as long as they meet the general class requirements. These requirements may include age or specific class pre-requisites.

PERSONAL SERVICES                              

The City of Redmond is unable to provide accommodations for personal services such as feeding, dressing, and toileting. Recreation program participants that need assistance with personal services are encouraged to participate in Redmond programs; however, they will need to provide their own attendant for personal services. Please notify Inclusion Services about personal attendants so we can arrange transportation and admission to activities for the attendant. Personal attendants are not charged class registration fees, transportation fees, or admission fees while accompanying a paying participant.
