Leisure Education

Leisure Education
Leisure Education allows students from M-NASR’s Member Districts to experience new leisure and recreation activities. In this safe environment, students are exposed to a variety of activities which allows them to increase their skill development, strengthen their community integration skills and learn about leisure resources in their communities.


While at M-NASR Leisure Education programs, teacher and classroom staff interaction is in integral part of the positive leisure education experience. This rapport assists in creating a comfortable, positive environment outside the classroom and promotes a transfer in skill sets.


A M-NASR full time staff leads the Leisure Education program, and all staff have had specialized training in working with individuals with special needs.


M-NASR is excited to offer to the community the opportunity to take part in our Sensory Connections Leisure Education Sessions at the Des Plaines Leisure Center.
