Therapeutic Recreation Virtual Programming
All new and returning individuals participating in Therapeutic Recreation Programs will need to have an updated assessment completed ASAP. Assessment information packets are available online for you to print and complete prior to attending an assessment with a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (C.T.R.S.). The assessment is to ensure all staff are aware of each individual’s communications style, necessary modifications, and other helpful information that will eliminate barriers to recreation participation. We will also establish measurable goals that each participant will be encouraged to work on while in T.R. programs. We can do assessments in a center while maintaining social distancing/COVID-19 safety guidelines OR via Zoom. To set up an assessment or if you have any questions, please call 757-382-1328.
You DO NOT have to have an updated assessment to participate in virtual programs. We do encourage you to complete an updated assessment ASAP to prepare for future programs!
All programs will be done virtually via Zoom. If you need assistance accessing Zoom, please call 382-1328. Zoom is free to use.
Programs will be FREE but pre-registration is required via ActiveNet. You will receive the Zoom meeting information and supply list (if applicable) after you register. Click here for more information and to register online.
