Special Needs Program

Lake Forest's Special Needs Program contributes to the growth and development of persons with developmental disabilities, and supports their families. The program serves participants of all ages.

The City partners with local businesses to bring our special needs community comprehensive programs designed to increase their opportunities to participate in community, recreation, leisure and cultural programs, as well as activities to build daily living skills. Programs and services help prepare persons who are disabled to become as socially, emotionally, and intellectually independent as possible. All classes are held in the City of Lake Forest.
