Therapeutic Recreation Program

Start moving like yourself again

Our recreation program offers a variety of leisure options for youth and adults with disabilities. We provide an adaptive format as well as opportunities for inclusion. Our policy within the Therapeutic Recreation program is to plan for the person first, the disability second, and to encourage the independent pursuit of personal leisure interests. Our goal is to make recreation/leisure choices available to everyone, and our objective is to accommodate individuals with necessary adaptations so they may participate as fully as their non-disabled peers.

•A newsletter six times a year, providing a calendar of trips, special events, weekly scheduled activities and program information. •Transportation to local activities for members within city limits, enrolled in the Night Club program. •Experienced Park and Recreation staff facilitating programs and events. •Discount on membership fees to the West Hills Tennis & Fitness Center •Access to resources and agencies such as ADD, Special Olympics and other advocates for persons with disabilities. •Scholarships and financial assistance available upon request. Inclusion in Youth Programs Youth with disabilities or health concerns are encouraged to participate in youth sports, aquatics, trips and summer programs. The inclusion policy of this program provides all children registered to participate with an equal advantage. Adaptive equipment, program modifications and other accommodations are available to assist the individual as needed. Individualized consultation with parents and coordination with the coach/instructor help make the transition possible. In addition, all coaches, aquatic staff and summer staff receive resource information for working with the child in their training sessions. We accept requests for one on one assistance for your child, but cannot guarantee it. We welcome any support staff provided by parents. When enrolling your child in sports and other programs, please let our staff know of medical conditions or other special needs. Information shared with a coach or instructor is confidential.

Our goals are to explore personal leisure interests and community resources, develop an understanding of self-advocacy and personal independence, and learn the rewards that come from volunteering. We encourage members to attend without staff, if possible. This group serves as a transition program between Teen Club and Night Club, and members will learn the importance of choosing and planning leisure options. • Meets weekly, Wednesdays 4:00-5:30 pm, locations include Senior Place and other sites • Personal planner is required, planning sessions held every 6 weeks Details for Night Club, Teen Club, and LIFE • Membership and registration packets are available at the TR office and must be completed and submitted prior to starting. • Membership fee is $48 (includes tax) for six months, with fees due January 1 and July 1. • Weekly activity schedules appear in the TR newsletter and online at the Parks and Recreation website. • Programs operate year round, 43 weeks per year. • Questions, call Wendy Reller, Therapeutic Recreation Coordinator at 507-774-7360
