Programs for the Developmentally Disabled
*The RADD and TADD programs are currently canceled due to Districtwide budget cuts. For more information on the LARPD budget, please visit the Budget page.
The RADD program is a special program offered to people 18 (out of high scholl) and older with developmental disabilities. The Recreational Activities for the Developmentally Disabled (RADD) program offers a variety of activities. The program promotes independence and respect and offers and opportunity to meet new friends. Each activity is rated on an exertion level listed on a scale of 1 to 10.
Level 1 = low (such as walking one block)
Level 5 = moderate (walking three blocks)
Level 10 = high (walking eight or more blocks)
There is one staff assigned to every six participants. Participants requiring personal care assistance (such as going to the bathroom, eating or special medical attention) must attend with a care provider.
RADD activity schedules are publicized in the LARPD Classes & Programs Brochures.
Participants must register in advance for all activities.
