The ability to effectively develop and lead recreational activities suitable for individuals and groups with disabilities is integral to the practice of Recreation Therapy. Students take an applied approach to develop competence in key areas including systematic programming planning, activity analysis, adaptation and assistive devices, intervention leadership, and creativity. This is accomplished through experiential learning exercises designed for students to achieve the skills necessary to facilitate a wide variety of adapted activities.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
