July 11, 2022 National Therapeutic Recreation Week
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.
