S.T.A.R.

Special Therapeutic Activities in Recreation 

S.T.A.R. is a community therapeutic recreation program serving individuals who are unable to successfully participate in regular recreation programs. Most individuals with special needs may participate in S.T.A.R. programs. 

Persons of all ages who are in special education classes, workshops, or who have leisure needs not met by traditional recreation programs are eligible. This includes those varying degrees of developmental delays, mental and physical disabilities, learning disabilities, behavior disorders, emotional difficulties, and hearing or visual impairments.
