Therapeutic Recreation professionals focus on improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
This is achieved through assessing the needs and strengths of individuals, and implementing a wide range of programs, services, and interventions which improve the physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and leisure needs of their consumers. Therapeutic recreation specialists assist clients to develop skills, knowledge, and behaviors for daily living and community involvement. Using a holistic approach, the therapeutic recreation specialist works with the consumer and their family to incorporate specific interests and community resources into a planned program designed to achieve optimal outcomes that transfer to the consumer’s real life situation.
