Important public health Program updates for
therapeutic recreation

In response to the evolving public health care crisis, Canton's Therapeutic Recreation Program has experienced substantial changes and interruptions to regular services and operations. Despite these challenges, online engagement has remained strong thanks to the amazing staff and families that are the very heart of this program. As we transition into the fall season of 2020, new efforts will be made to connect and engage with our participants in new formats that can better ensure the safety of all involved.

Please visit this page and the Canton Therapeutic Recreation Facebook Page often. A selection of virtual and physically-distanced outdoor programs will open for registration beginning in September. Smaller class sizes and other important safety protocol will help us begin to re-engage with the families and friends that we've missed so much. If you would like to learn more about our new program locations, weather, mask, and cancellation policies, and other important relaunch information, please visit 

Therapeutic RecreationTherapeutic Recreation (or "TR") accommodations typically include individualized techniques and resources that enhance participation without fundamentally altering a program.

Individuals participating in Canton's Therapeutic Recreation programming must be able to accomplish personal skills like feeding, toileting, and dressing themselves. Individuals who are unable to accomplish these skills on their own may participate with assistance from an aide, family member, or other personal resource. If an aide will be attending the program with your participant, please make sure he/she is registered too. This helps us better plan and cover any additional expenses that may be incurred.
