Building connections and achieving goals through recreation therapy and aquatic therapy       

Group Recreation Therapy Classes

Classes focus on achieving developmental milestones, interacting socially with peers, and acquiring new skills related to leisure and sport while having fun in a positive environment.

Each child participates in a standardized assessment--the Comprehensive Evaluation in Recreation Therapy--during the first class. From this assessment, four individualized goals and a treatment plan is developed.

Children follow a schedule of activities intertwining their individual therapeutic goals with gross motor activities, socialization, games, and a variety of strategically adapted sports activities.
