Recreational Therapy uses play, recreation and leisure activities to improve physical, cognitive, social, and emotional functioning. The primary goal of the program is development of lifetime leisure skills. Individualized goals and objectives are established based on observational assessment results and in consultation with the participant and/or his/her parent or guardian. Interventions may include prescriptive recreational activity, leisure education, community transition training, and leisure and play activities. Recreational Therapy includes art, community outings, cooking, crafts, dance, music, organized games and sports, swimming, and other developmental recreational activities.
