Students are introduced to the foundations of therapeutic recreation with a focus on the design, development, delivery, and evaluation of services. Topics include definitions and benefits, facilitation techniques, principles, and practices. Emphasis is placed on assessment and charting, interdisciplinary therapeutic planning, activity limitations and adaptation, facility accessibility and equipment modifications, integration, referral processes, advocacy, public education and awareness. The history and development of the profession and career opportunities are explored.
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.
