The NMML started 15 years ago as a little baseball program for children with disabilities. The goal was to get kids off the sidelines, into the game, make some new friends and get a little sun shine on their face. That was 15 years ago and the word INCLUSION hadn’t even entered our minds yet. Now INCLUSION, changing the social architecture of our community, is our ultimate goal. ADAPTED SOFTBALL is still going strong, over 250 athletes on the rosters for Spring and Fall Seasons. In addition we have programs focused on SOCIAL SKILLLs, COMMUNITY SKILLS, FITNESS & HEALTH, INDIVIDUALIZED VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION, INDIVIDUALIZED MICRO ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT AND LANGUAGE SKILLS, SPECIFICALLY BODY LANGUAGE, THE NON VERBAL SUBTEXT TO ANY CONVERSATION.
