Adult Programs

NEDSRA offers a wide range of programs and services for adults of all ages and abilities. Most programs are geared towards specific age and ability groups, so we can best meet the needs of each individual we serve. Annually we implement more than 600 programs and special events, assuring and promoting CHOICE for all individuals.

Please see our current brochure on our home page for current offerings. If you are unsure of which programs would best meet your needs, or those of a family member, please contact our Registrar, Ana Salazar at 630.620.4500, or, asalazar@nedsra.org.

We welcome and highly encourage an initial participation assessment to assist us in meeting your goals.
