Special Needs Participants

Americans with Disabilities Act Notice


People with and without disabilities are encouraged and invited to register for all Park District programs of interest. The Park District is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (the “ADA”) and all other applicable laws regarding nondiscrimination.

If you or a family member has a disability and are interested in participating in or attending Park District programs or activities, the Park District will make reasonable accommodations to facilitate that opportunity, such as providing auxiliary communication aids and services, revising policies and practices, removing barriers, selecting available alternate activity sites or taking other appropriate action.

The Park District does not employ any nurses, doctors or other staff who are licensed, certified, or trained to provide medical diagnoses or care to patrons. We are generally able to assist with the self-administration of medication (reviewing each particular request on a case-by-case basis), but we do not allow staff to diagnose medical situations or perform invasive or complex emergency procedures.

To assist Park District staff in making appropriate accommodations, we urge you to contact us at least 10 business days in advance of program participation and discuss the necessary accommodation with Donna Rossi, 847-692-5127 or drossi@prparks.org.

The ADA Supervisor will work closely with the Maine-Niles Association of Special Recreation’s (M-NASR) Integration Specialist to provide for your individual needs. You may also contact our ADA Supervisor if you require Park District publications or materials in a special format, or if you have any concerns or complaints regarding Park District ADA compliance.

Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing can make contact with the Park District by using the Illinois Relay System at 7-1-1.
