Our blog post, Is there a difference between recreational therapy and activity programs?, is one of our most popular posts – often being in the top 5 posts! Both, recreational therapy (RT) and activity programs, can be very important for people with disabilities and older adults residing in skilled nursing, acute care, and group home settings, and for those living in the community. Recreational therapists and activity professionals provide recreational and leisure activities that help the people they serve reach their full potential.

NIDILRR supports recreational therapists, activity professionals, and the people they serve by funding research and development projects related to recreation and leisure. These projects include:

NARIC’s information specialists searched REHABDATA for documents in our collection and found over 700 documents about recreation, leisure, and activities. If you would like to learn more about RT or activity programs or would like to find a recreation therapist or activity professional in your area, please contact NARIC’s information specialists via chat, phone, or email.

Please note: If you are interested in becoming accredited as a recreational therapist or activity professional, please contact the agencies mentioned in the original post.
