Therapeutic Recreation


Hi my name is Sasha and I work in
Therapeutic Recreation. How do we help kids be kids? Our aim is to help children, youth, and families experience and enjoy recreation to the fullest to realize
their fullest potential at home, school, and in the community. We do this in a
variety of ways. We support people to explore their interests and develop
skills. We provide advice on appropriate recreation and sport programs, supports,
and adapted recreation equipment. We also collaborate with schools on
participation in phys ed class and extracurriculars and with community
recreation providers. Therapeutic Recreation provides therapy groups such as splashing Guppies and Ability Through Drumming. We also host some events such
as Choosing a Summer Camp and our fall and winter recreation open houses. We
also support others in developing a new program or community initiative
based on recreation interest. And that’s how we help kids be kids.
