Therapeutic recreation and life skills
Under the umbrella of participation and inclusion, therapeutic recreation and life skills are designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate a person's level of functioning. Our goals are to increase independence and life activities, promote health and wellness and reduce barriers to participation.
Programs offered throughout the year include a variety of recreation and life skills programs. Click here for our general information sheet and how to self-refer to our services.
Structured to support clients and families during important transition points, therapeutic recreation and life skills services are guided by developmental milestones, promoting life skills so that clients learn to function optimally within their home and community environments.
Experience-based life skills activities teach skills using discussion, role playing, problem-solving, peer teaching and experiential learning techniques. Acquired skills are practiced in a simulated and/or real environment where calculated risk is encouraged.
