What Happens In First Session?

The first session is an initial Intake Assessment. In that session, the Recreational Therapist reviews your health history, administers a Recreational Therapy Assessment of your individual needs and develops a Treatment Plan for you to achieve your therapeutic goals.

What Happens After First Session?

"Recreation Therapists all follow a standard called the APIED Process." A = Assessments, P = Planning, I = Implementation, E = Evaluation, and D = Documentation. 

In the Recreational Therapy private sessions after Intake, the therapist will work with you to reach your plan goals while doing activities that you enjoy. They will will evaluate and document your progress.

  • For example, if you like video games, your session may include playing video games. 
  • If you enjoy art, your session may include art (creating it, appreciating it, etc.). If you enjoy gardening, your session may include gardening. 
  • If you enjoy business/career activities, your sessions may include Executive Coaching. 

The session is created around your individual interests to meet your health goals
