In this week's VNB Community Counts, Sarah Blech sits down with CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk about Therapeutic Recreation programs.
Therapeutic Recreation Program is for people ages 8 and up, with physical and or mental disabilities, whose recreational needs cannot be met by regular programs.
The goals of the activities are to improve self-esteem, health, social skills, recreation skills, safety skills, and independence while having fun. Staff participant ratio is usually 1 to 8.
