Read in the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) winter 2010 newsletter that New York State TR Licensure Bill was introduced to the New York State Senate.
The next step is for the bill to pass and become law.
Think licensure of recreational therapists/ therapeutic recreation specialists is important.
We, recreational therapists work with people with serious mental illnesses, physical limitations, or other illnesses.
A person needs a license to drive a car
A person needs a license to cut hair
Naturally, I’d want a person who provides RT/ TR services to be licensed and certified if they were to ever provide services to anyone in my family.
Hope the licensure processes gets started in my state of West Virginia.
We’re having NCTRC talk at our West Virginia state conference in the fall of 2010.
Please email me if you’d like to present on state licensure at this conference.
