Inclusion

Inclusion Information

Waukegan Park District is committed to meeting your unique, individual leisure needs. If you feel you/your child are in need of inclusion services, please contact Kari Robinson at 847-360-4763 to start the process of assessment.

Waukegan Park District-Special Recreation will determine inclusion service needs based on an Inclusion Assessment it conducts. Inclusion will be determined on a case by case and program by program basis. Each request is unique and is determined individually. Please contact Kari Robinson at 847-360-4763 to have you or your child assessed to determine if they qualify for inclusive services and to determine how quickly services can be coordinated. Special Recreation staff requires two weeks to set up appropriate services for the participant.  Typically, assessments can take up to one week.  Once the assessment is complete, it typically takes an additional week to arrange for inclusive services. Please be aware not all personal care needs can be met by the district.
