Inclusion Programs

All Ages

The Milton and Frances Schloss Special Needs and Services Department was created in 2013 to provide programming for children, teens, young adults, and seniors with disabilities. These programs are for children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities who are able to participate independently or with the help of their own personal care assistant.

Overview

This department develops and expands programming and services to support and enrich the lives of individuals with special needs and their families; and, looks for unique, creative, and innovative ways to serve the community.

We strive to provide inclusive and adaptive programing for individuals with physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities. The JCC staff works with families to ensure that proper placement and accommodations are made, when possible.

These programs are generously funded in part by The Milton and Frances Schloss Special Needs and Services Fund for Children and Adults, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati.

For more information about special needs services at the J, or to let us know what your needs are, please contact us by email at: [email protected].
