Our mission is to ensure appropriate and equitable program opportunities. Accommodation services for those who qualify are offered to assist persons with disabilities participating in City of Irvine classes, activities and programs. This includes temporary 1:1 inclusion support, modification of equipment or modification of other methods resulting in making the City’s services readily accessible and usable.
Following an initial assessment, support staff and caregivers will identify long-term goals for the participant. Goals are developed to ensure the needs of the participant are being met. Disability Services will then support the participant by facilitating participation, socialization or other program goals. As the participant acclimates to the program, support services will fade. Those participants seeking more permanent support will be given appropriate referrals. Reasonable accommodations may also be requested. This may include increased supervision levels, modifying equipment, adapting activities and training on-site staff to ensure the needs of the participant are being met.
Please note: Accommodation services are temporary, and based on staff availability and participant eligibility. To request an Accommodation Information Packet, or to inquire about our programs, please contact Disability Services at IDS@cityofirvine.org or 949-724- 6637.
