Recreation Therapy

Improving The Quality Of Life One Warrior at A Time

Recreation Therapy or Therapeutic Recreation uses treatment, education, and recreation services to help people with illness, disabilities, and other conditions to develop and use their leisure in ways that enhance their health, functional abilities, independence, and quality of life (NTRS 2000).  Recreational Therapy is provided by trained professionals who are certified and/or licensed to provide services.

At Simple Steps, LLC, we employ Recreation Therapists to provide home and community based therapeutic programming to meet the needs of Veterans with traumatic brain injury, neurological disorders, and/or physical disabilities. Our therapists work with Veterans and their families to provide leisure education, which includes teaching

  • leisure awareness,
  • leisure skills,
  • and recreation participation
