NJCRID increases the awareness of leisure needs for individuals with disabilities through the provision of educational workshops, conferences webinars and advocacy. Our events are attended by recreation professionals, disability advocates and family members among others throughout the state of New Jersey. All our programs are designed to offer CEUs to professionals as appropriate.
