ADAPTIVE RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES / ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMS Adaptive Recreation Opportunities The Adaptive Recreation Opportunities program provides quality and equal opportunities for recreation and leisure programs to community members with disabilities. The ARO program offers healthy and fun experiences through the following three basic service areas. Inclusion Do you need assistance to fully participate in activities listed throughout the Recreator? The City of Fort Collins welcomes individuals of all abilities into our classes and programs. If you are interested in participation support, please indicate any special needs you may have when you register. Please note: Requests should be made at least two weeks before the class begins. Contact Renee Lee, CTRS, 970.224.6027, Transition If you need more assistance in making your recreation and leisure choices, but want to be as independent as possible, the Transition program might be right for you. Explore new experiences, learn about exciting recreation opportunities and meet new people. A therapeutic professional will help you develop your personal Passport to Recreation Profile and discuss your needs, strengths, and interests. Call Alison Cope, MS, OTR 970.416.2024, ext 1. Specialized Programs These programs are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities.
