Recreational Therapy and Kishwaukee SRA

KSRA programs are planned according to the principles of Recreational Therapy (RT). RT uses strategies to address the social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and leisure needs of those impacted by illness, injury, or disability. Participation in therapeutic recreation programs, like those we offer at KSRA, can promote improvement and prevent decline in these areas for greater independence and well-being.

For more information on how to select the most appropriate programs and the KSRA assessment process, please contact the KSRA office to discuss these subjects with the Program Supervisor.
