Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy
Therapeutic Recreation: The certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist works on community reintegration by teaching patients how to use community resources and allowing them to practice navigating common leisure sites (i.e. restaurants, movie theaters, etc.).
