The Licensure Committee has formed and is working hard on making forward movement.
Volunteers are needed for the following work groups:
Educating other professionals and legislators about recreational therapy, our scope of practice, what licensure means for our discipline, and collaborate to inform other disciplines (PT, OT, ST, Music/Art, Drama, Activity
Compile & distribute material for why we need a licensure bill (FAQ’s, advocacy “TR Fact Sheet”), including “purpose of licensure” points. This can be used to educate customers, consumers, administrators, and other professionals.
Contact other associations & disciplines for support and connect with key individuals that can help support our efforts (professional organizations and political figures).
Look up statistics for injuries that occurred from a professional working as a Recreational Therapist in an unlicensed state, and compile any other information necessary to support our bill.
