The Attleboro Norton YMCA offers a wide variety of inclusion and adaptive programs, which are designed to give children and adults with all types of disabilities the opportunities to participate in a wide variety of recreational and therapeutic activities. The Y offers an environment that fosters individual growth and success through programs that develop a healthy spirit, mind and body.

At the Y, we emphasize and celebrate each person’s abilities and individuality. Our programs are designed to foster independence and social skills while providing positive recreational and educational experiences.

We can take existing Y programs and adapt them to meet individual’s needs. We can help you select programs that are right for you and your family.

Strong Program

Ages: 7-9 and 10-13
This adaptive physical activity class will offer modified instruction and social supports in a non-competitive, encouraging setting. This program focuses on establishing and maintaining healthy habits and an active lifestyle.
With a higher staff-to-participant ratios, this program is able to provide the necessary support that kids need to work on their social skills as well as their athletic skills. Each class begins and ends with an open gym and socialization and stretch time. Participants will play games, learn and take part in different sports activities, and get cardiovascular exercise. The activities provided each week will help children build these skills while having fun as a team. All abilities are welcome!

Summer Camp Inclusion Program

Summer is a time for kids to be kids. With our camp inclusion program, we aim to extend a positive, engaging, and fulfilling summer camp experience for children of all abilities.

All of our summer camp and specialty programs at Camp Finberg offer inclusion for children with a variety of developmental and behavioral needs. In our camp inclusion program model, all children are fully integrated into our camp programs and camp groups with additional supports and modifications as necessary.

Our specialized staff members work closely with families and potential campers to determine which of our programs could be a fit for each child. Through meetings with the families, observations, and a records review, our staff can develop an appropriate support plan for the child’s successful inclusion in our programs.

Thanks to donations made through the Attleboro YMCA’s Annual Campaign, there is no additional cost beyond the camp fee for a child to participate in our programs with inclusion support.
