How can Therapeutic Recreation help to manage responsive behaviours?
Jackson Therapeutic Recreation is proud to have actively supported clients and their families through the Passport Program since 2008. If you already have Passport funding please contact us to discuss engaging our services.
If you are not familiar with the Passport Program, it is offered through the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, and provides financial aid to anyone 18 years of age or older living in Ontario with a developmental disability. Here is a link to the Ministry site for further information.
Maintaining physical fitness, increasing self-confidence, improving co-ordination, and developing a positive use of leisure time – these are the benefits that therapeutic recreation brings to people with physical disabilities.
The emotional, psychological and social well-being of each of us is impacted by mental health.
Mental health affects how we think, feel, behave, handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. It is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Various mental health diagnoses can result in challenging behaviours that recreation therapists can play a role in managing.
