Therapeutic Recreation and the Nature of Disabilities - Print
Dimensions: 11 × 8.5 × 1 in
Binding Type: Hardcover
One of the major competency areas tested on the examination for certification as a therapeutic recreation specialist is diagnostic groupings and populations served.
Yet few curricula give this competency the attention it deserves.
Most professional curricula treat the topic of special populations as part of an introductory course or within the greater context of courses such as anatomy and physiology.
Therapeutic Recreation and the Nature of Disabilities delivers pertinent information about working with persons with disabilities.
Without a working knowledge of impairments and their functional implications students will not be prepared to plan and design programs in TR.
