Join us in celebrating National Therapeutic Recreation Week! This week we’re bringing awareness to therapeutic recreation programs and services that can help improve the health and well-being of children with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.
Your child at any age can benefit from exercise and recreational activities. Best of all it doesn’t have to be time-consuming. With a few minutes each day, you can help your child live a healthier lifestyle.
Here are a few steps to help guide your child to a happier and healthier lifestyle:
- Assess your child’s health limitations and create a health plan that works for their individual needs.
- Pick one healthy lifestyle goal at a time and determine the steps you need to take to help your child achieve it.
- Start with minor adjustments and gradually incorporate these changes into your child’s daily routine.
- Keep your child motivated by rewarding them every time they reach a milestone that brings them closer to achieving their goal.
Make sure to communicate your child’s health goals with their physician to prevent any possible injuries or illnesses.
