What is Recreational Therapy?
All interventions are carried out after an in-depth assessment and are designed to meet the child's needs while catering to their current interests; music, art, sports, outdoors, etc.
One option for Recreational Therapy focuses on physical adaptations but also fosters group participation, leadership, skill building, and self-confidence.
Designing treatments based on activities kids enjoy increases their desire to work on social, emotional, cognitive, or physical skills.
Providing adaptations for children to participate in the things they enjoy with other kids around them is essential to quality of life.
