yes all children should be allowed to attend any program as long as there is adult supervision. Just because a child has a disability they shouldn't be left out of what other kids get to do. There might be limits of what they are able to do but at least let them be involved in some way. Not only does it give them joy to be able to do some of the same things other kids get to do-the other kids get to see that just because you have a disability your just like them in some ways.

HDridinhunny answered the question very thoroughly. I would like to add something. If your child has a disability and you are sending him or her to a camp or program, be sure to tell the ones in charge about the special needs of your child. They will need plenty of notice to provide things such as additional adult supervision, adapted materials, or special foods. The experience can be positive for everyone if time is allowed for proper planning.
