Special Kids – receives grant!

I interviewed Becky Bachelor, CTRS a few months ago to provide us with recreational therapy for children with special needs. I thought it was a great webinar. I found it very informative.

Becky works at “Special Kids,” in TN.

I was happy to see that a grant has been provided  to help kids.

The money from the grant (over $1,000) will go towards their “Play with a purpose” program.

The article provides an overview of what their Recreational Therapists do.
