Therapeutic Recreation

We provide your child with recreation and leisure opportunities designed to improve physical, social affective and cognitive abilities, based on an individualized plan designed around your child’s interests.

Children and young adults at St. Mary’s have the same social and emotional needs as children everywhere, and the therapeutic recreation department provides daily opportunities for children to enjoy recreation and leisure pursuits, such as pet therapy.

The individuals enjoy many activities both at the Home and in the community, from swimming in the Home’s therapy pool to taking field trips to the beach, the library or a museum.
