About Youth Programs
NSSRA designed our youth programs to support youth and teens with disabilities and allow them to pursue new interests, enhance their social skills, and boost their confidence and self-esteem. We seek to establish a warm and comfortable environment where participants can be themselves and have fun with their peers. Our programs enable participants to interact with others and develop relationships that will last a lifetime.
A few things you should know:
- Regardless of the program, participants are always encouraged to express themselves through their chosen activity.
- Peer interaction and appropriate social behavior are a focus during all programs.
- Most of NSSRA’s youth programming is organized and offered by age, not ability, so programs are listed for registration by age range or grade level.
- From time to time, programs are offered for individuals with specific disabilities in mind.
