Attention Parents & Teachers:

Invite us to attend IEP meetings!

A representative from NASR-Belvidere will attend IEP meetings at your request or our availability. This is a wonderful opportunity to begin forging the relationship between the park district special recreation department, school, and parent which will help to enhance a student’s recreational abilities. Many of the NASR-Belvidere programs and services can be utilized as useful tools for participants to gain social, emotional, and life skills while applying them to their everyday lives.

Outreach

NASR-Belvidere Outreach proactively increases the visibility of programs offered, events planned, and services available, for individuals with disabilities.
