                                             Introduction
Summer is just around the corner and parents are beginning to think about what activities will be available
to offer their children for the summer as well as throughout the year. This familiar task is often a little more
challenging for families of children with disabilities. In fact, individuals with disabilities may benefit from
recreational opportunities throughout the year.

The State Support Team Region 3 (SST3) offers the 2011 Summer and Beyond Directory as a
resource to parents, family members and school district personnel about extended opportunities around the
Cuyahoga County area.

The information in this directory is meant to be used as a reference and should not be considered
comprehensive.

We do not make recommendations concerning the quality of these programs and strongly encourage
readers to call the contact persons listed for clarification and explanation of their programs.

You may also contact your local community recreation departments, schools, county library branches,
YMCA, YWCA, Scouts of America, and local cultural arts and entertainment centers for additional programs
or activities.

                             Keep this book handy for NEXT YEAR’S planning!
