Recreation and leisure
Many youth with disabilities need assistance to learn how to use their recreation and leisure time constructively. Planning often needs to focus on de¬veloping a student’s ability to identify, pursue and participate fully in recreational and leisure activities in school and the community.

While transition planning cannot encompass all phases of an individual’s life, having good personal and social skills can help the person form and maintain friendships within the community, interact with service providers, and obtain and maintain employment.

The Recreation Council of Greater St. Louis is a not-for-profit organization that serves as a clearinghouse for information on leisure, recreation and socialization opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities that reside in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The council works to ensure that individuals with disabilities are aware of and have access to activities and programs of their choice. The Recreation Council website offers a directory of agencies in the St. Louis area that offer recreation and leisure activities.
