Member Benefit: Solving
Access and Inclusion Issues
By John N. McGovern, J.D.
P
ark and recreation agencies have always been in the solutions
business. This brief overview shows one way to use solutions
expertise for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliance
efforts. The ADA title II regulation, published by the U.S.
Department of Justice, applies to public park and recreation agencies.
It has several " ADA 101 " requirements. One of these requirements is to
create an internal process to solve access and inclusion issues.
We know how important it is to
use words that match intent. The
title II regulation at 35.107(b) refers
to the internal solutions process as
both a complaint procedure and
a grievance procedure, all in one
sentence. But those words create
an adversarial situation where one
does not exist.
Let's review the following example:
A parent comes to your park
and recreation agency and asks
for one-on-one staff support in an
after-school program for her son,
who is on the Autism spectrum.
You and your therapeutic recreation
staff, or someone who knows
both
disability
and
recreation,
schedule a time to meet and conduct
an assessment (as required by
title II). The parent has not made
a complaint or filed a grievance
- the parent has simply asked for
support for the boy. Here, you can
be all about solutions.
Set the right tone and invite your
participants to trust that you, too,
want a solution.
