I don’t live in Pasadena, but the Verne Cox Multipurpose Recreation Center makes me wish I did.
This is a recreational center with pool, gym and classrooms which offers programming for people with disabilities, including adaptive aquatics, outings, cooking and art classes, sports and after school programs for kids with special needs. Right now, its afterschool program is for kids up to the age of 15, but the Director says they may even increase this age limit if there is sufficient demand. Pasadena ISD and Friendswood ISD provide transportation after school. The Rec center also offers a summer program.
Finding a center which offers Adaptive Rectreational Programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities practically in my own backyard is “epic,” as my nt son would say. I look forward to taking advantage of their offerings in the near future.
