IMG_3627

Did you know that all of our group programs are integrated and promote inclusion and participation for all abilities?

Every one of our therapeutic recreation group programs have been carefully developed by our Recreation Therapists to consider the needs, abilities, strength and interest of our participants.  Group can run for the Ages 4-21+.  This page will share with you all of the regions that are currently hosting our unique therapeutic recreation programs.  Please note that the programs technically run in 8-10 week sessions. Check in often as new ones will be posted and new communities are always getting involved.


SSAH Funding can be used for our group programs!

“We recently had the occasion to use the services of Recreational Respite to teach our 29 year old Son who has developmental disability, skills for independent living through a variety of recreational therapy goals. We are pleased with the progress he has made, he has become better aware of what is involved in living on his own, particularly regarding his social involvement, personal safety, proper nutrition and money management. A definite goal oriented plan was developed in consultation with our Son and us specifically to suit his needs. We received regular feedback on our Son’s progress. We are thankful to both the Director of Recreational Respite and our Son’s Recreational Therapist for their cooperation and assistance. Their knowledge and experience dealing with cases such as our Son came through in the way they dealt with him.”…Anna and Raman

Our Daughter takes part in a weekly group program that Recreational Respite has created and tailored to work on various goals for each of the participants. Our Daughter is on the Autism Spectrum and has had some real social issues which have caused her to become quite isolated, unmotivated and very hard to interact with at home with both my Husband and I and our other Daughter. The program has really opened up our Daughter, she is far more outgoing and excited about taking part in various activities (she never did this before!). Recreational Respite was able to tell us what she was really great at and how to try it at home. It so happens that our Daughter loves bean bags! She tosses one at us with a smile, every time she wants to communicate with us. It’ s a small step- but we’ll take it!…Marcy and Dave
