Innovative Recreation Cooperative

The goal of the Patricia Neal Innovative Recreation Cooperative (IRC) is to remove barriers that prevent an individual from developing the ability to enjoy self-directed leisure for a healthier lifestyle. The program reflects its name in its philosophy:

  • Innovation refers to new and creative ways in which individuals with a disability are able to participate in activities they enjoy.
  • Recreation is the medium that is used to enhance participants’ education and awareness of leisure opportunities and activities.
  • Cooperative is the group of individuals who support, nurture and mentor participants, using their expertise and talents to make the clinic a success.

Each IRC clinic is an innovative form of recreation using a cooperative approach of different talents. We believe:

  • Play is an instrumental and fundamental need of all people. Everyone works to be able to play. Play behaviors are what structure work behaviors.
  • The tangential effects of recreation promote and provide health and wellness. Leisure has no barriers. 
  • It is the right of all individuals to participate in leisure. What each person makes of the experience reflects each person’s individuality.
