Recreation Therapy - Fast Track at Niagara College

As a Recreation Therapy Professional, students will use meaningful recreation and leisure education, counselling and experiences to promote, restore, rehabilitate, and/or maintain quality of life and well-being. Therapeutic Recreation supports the development of strengths while addressing social, emotional, physical, spiritual and cognitive needs.

  • Receive specialized training and certifications designed to meet the needs of an aging population including:
  • Communication Tips and Tools for Dementia
  • DementiAbility Methods Certificate
