Division of Therapeutic Recreation

The Cincinnati Recreation Commission’s Division of Therapeutic Recreation (TR) offers a continuum of leisure
services for individuals with disabilities that promote a healthy lifestyle, as well as the opportunity to participate in
high-quality recreational and cultural experiences in the community. As advocates for individuals with disabilities, we
provide inclusive and therapeutic recreation programming choices and promote accessibility at all CRC facilities.
Many of our full-time CRC Therapeutic Recreation Program Staff are Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists
(CTRS).

Inclusion Support Services
We provide a consultative approach to supporting individuals with disabilities in all CRC programs and facilities. Our
goal is to provide opportunities for inclusion that reduce physical, programmatic and attitudinal barriers. In addition
to providing support to CRC facilities, we act as a resource to our community in areas such as advocacy, disability
awareness and disability training.

Therapeutic Recreation Services
We implement goal-oriented programs for individuals with disabilities which promote a healthy lifestyle as well as
provide exposure to cultural experiences in the community. Our programs encourage the development of physical,
social, emotional and cognitive skills to enhance the quality of life, while preparing each person for leisure
involvement in their community. Therapeutic Recreation services include programming for persons with cognitive
and physical impairments.

What is a CTRS?
A Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) has acquired a body of knowledge including theory, philosophy
and practice that spans a wide range of disabling conditions and illnesses. When that knowledge is applied, the
CTRS addresses the total person and the associative life factors that may apply to their specific disability or illness.

Professional recognition is granted by the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification to individuals who
apply and meet established specific standards for certification, which include education, experience, and continuing
professional development. The CTRS certification is granted after those specific qualifications have been met and the
candidate has successfully completed the national computerized certification exam.

Our Programs
The programs identified in this guide are designed to meet the needs and interests of individuals with intellectual,
physical, learning, and emotional disabilities. While some programs can accommodate participants of varying levels
of ability, other programs have specific skill requirements due to the nature of the activities. Specific skill
requirements, if necessary, are included in the program descriptions. If you have questions about a program or level
of assistance provided, please contact any of the TR Staff listed on page 2.

                   Recreation programs and facilities are open to all citizens regardless of race, gender, color, religion,
                     nationality or disability. CRC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to supporting
                   the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please call in advance if you require special accommodations.

Inclusion and Accommodations

Individuals with disabilities are not limited to therapeutic recreation services. If you are looking to add a little flavor to your
leisure lifestyle . . . try your hand at Inclusion! In addition to our therapeutic recreation programs, individuals with disabilities
are welcome to participate in any Cincinnati Recreation Commission program through our Inclusion Services. The TR staff will
assist you in identifying programs, registering and requesting accommodations.

What is Inclusion?
Inclusion means individuals with and without disabilities participating in recreational activities together.

Inclusion Support Services
The TR Division’s Inclusion Team was created to assist CRC’s recreation center staff with accommodations, education, and
materials to aid them in including individuals with disabilities in their programs and activities.

Types of Accommodations
       Changes in Rules and/or Policies
       Assistance with ADLs (activities of daily living)
       Architectural Changes
       Adaptive Equipment
       Increased Supervision
       Behavior Supports
       Specialized Training for Staff
       Boardmaker Tools for Communication

How to Request an Accommodation
If you feel an accommodation would be beneficial or necessary, please request an Accommodation and Assessment Form at the
time of registration at the recreation center. This document is used to formally request additional assistance you may require.

Inclusive Programs for Teens
If you would like to be notified of our CRC-Wide Teen Events, please contact Taylor Singleton at (513)352-4056.

Inclusive Programs for 50+
The Therapeutic Recreation Division is working with the Senior Division to include individuals with disabilities and/or arthritis into
all CRC programs. CRC’s Senior Division provides services for individuals who are 50 or older. If you are interested in
participating in these programs, the Therapeutic Division staff will work with the Senior Division staff to provide the
accommodations needed for you to successfully participate. The Senior Division offers an array of programming—Senior
Olympics, line dancing, art classes and outings. Programs are available at many recreation centers across the city—typically
providing services during the daytime hours. These programs are developed for seniors without disabilities; therefore, there is a
level of independence needed to participate. Accommodations could include changes in rules or policies, assistance with ADLs
(activities for daily living), adaptive equipment, increased supervision, and training for staff. We hope you will consider
participating in some of these great programs!

                          Any program or service offered by Cincinnati Recreation
                     Commission can be made inclusive! Please contact Alayne Kazin
                    at (513)352-4945 for more information about our Inclusion process.

Programmatic accessibility is one of the key elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and allows all individuals with disabilities to benefit
from all City services and programs offered to the public. In order for all City programs and services to be “accessible to and usable by people
with disabilities” as mandated by the ADA, sometimes reasonable accommodations must occur. It is important to know your rights as an
individual or as a parent of a child with a disability in regards to recreation/leisure and inclusion services. Please join us for an informative
presentation with snacks and get more information on how to get the most out of recreation in the Cincinnati community and surrounding
areas.

Therapeutic Recreation Aquatics Programs/Services
Our year-round, warm water swimming pool is located on the grounds of Taft Elementary School. Our facility is accessible, with
accessible parking, showers, toilet stalls, and an assisted dressing room. Several water entries and exits are available, including
a pool chair lift and “easy ladder” with hand railings. The water temperature is maintained at a comfortable 87 degrees in the
winter, and 86 degrees in the summer.

    Please note that we are no longer accepting the Medicaid Waiver as payment for our Aquatics Programs.

                           Adapted Aquatics Learn-to-Swim Program

Our Adapted Aquatics Program is coordinated by Eric Rueger, WSI. His core teams of qualified and experienced instructors
are committed to creating positive aquatic experiences for all ages and ability levels.

Our individualized Adapted Aquatics Program is designed to include all ability levels by incorporating the Red Cross Swim
Progression and the TR Sequential Swim Progression for individuals with physical, neurological, developmental, and cognitive
impairments. Participants, ages 3 and older, are taught swim skills, water safety and independence. Children and adults can be
successfully included in traditional swim programs if they are introduced to the water with positive experiences, dedicated staff,
and structured lessons allowing for maximum attention. When enrolled in our Adapted Aquatics Program, swimmers learn
American Red Cross Aquatics Levels I, II, and III swim skills—while the ultimate goals include:

            Safe, independent play in the water
            Participation in traditional, inclusive swim lesson programs
            Competitive/Non-Competitive participation in Special Olympics or other swim team in the community

Each swimmer receives individualized, progressive strategies and teaching methods that make learning achievable, sensory
integrative, and fun for all. We will keep specific learning types and considerations in mind while structuring lessons, and
provide visual, auditory, and sensory stimulation based on the needs of the individual. Lessons are offered on Tuesdays,
Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Adapted Aquatics Registration/Payment
Payment for our programs must be received at the time of registration, and is accepted on a first come first served
basis. The registration deadline is two weeks before each session begins. Failure to meet these requirements will result in
the participant losing their spot to another participant on our waiting list. We are more than willing to work with families in these
tough economic times, but we also want to ensure that new swimmers are able to register for our programs as well.

Payment will not be accepted at the program site. Please visit us, call us with your credit card payment, or mail your
payments and program registration forms to CRC’s Main Office at: Cincinnati Recreation Commission, Division of Therapeutic
Recreation, 805 Central Avenue, Suite 800, Cincinnati, OH 45202. Please indicate your preferred day(s), time(s) and program
code(s) on the Program Registration Form.
             Participants who “drop out” of the program that they registered for less than seven days before the start date will forfeit
              their program payment.

             There will be no “make-ups” for missed swim lessons.

             Confirmations will be mailed and will include the participant’s swim day, time, address to the pool, and directions from
              I-71. If the swimmer is new to our program, please make arrangements to drive by the pool before the first lesson, as
              the location can be difficult to see from the road.

                            FREE Parent Learn-to-Swim Program!
     In offering aquatic programs that focus on safety in and around the water, we would like to extend FREE Swim
     Lessons to parents/guardians of participants who are enrolled in our Adapted Aquatics Program! Our
     swimmers will be safer when their parents feel comfortable and safe in the water as well, as this opportunity will help
     parents to continue our work by reiterating skill practice during leisure swim times. The free lessons have a small group
     format and take into consideration the parents’ current level of swim ability and comfort in the water. Lessons are
     offered during the same swim time for your child, and prompt registration will ensure lessons based on
     availability of instructors.

     Parents who wish to participate in this Learn-to-Swim Program must have a current CRC Center
     Membership. Membership fees are as follows: Young Adults (ages 18-24) = $10.00, Adults (ages 25-49) = $25.00,
     and Active Adults (ages 50 and older) = $10.00. For additional information regarding Center Membership Benefits,
     please see page 3 of this program guide.

In lieu of offering a swim team option, we will be supporting any swimmer enrolled in our Adapted Aquatics
Learn-to-Swim program in competitive opportunities in conjunction with Special Olympics of Hamilton County.
Please call Eric at (513)352-4971 if you are interested in competing in the fall or spring swim meets, or, if you
would like more information about this opportunity.

             Swimming improves your health and fitness . . .

Arthritis Aquatics
The Arthritis Aquatics Program is designed to allow individuals with arthritis to exercise in a supportive, low resistance
environment. Water is a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. Arthritis Aquatics allows you to exercise
without putting excess strain on your joints and muscles. We provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere in which you can
make new friends and try new activities. This social interaction can help decrease feelings of depression and isolation. Progress
in the aquatic activities can lead to independence and improved self-esteem. The gentle activities in warm water, with guidance
from a trained instructor, will help you gain strength and flexibility.
Please consult your physician prior to registration. People with severe or multiple joint problems or those who
have had joint surgery are encouraged to talk with their doctors regarding any special precautions or limitations.

Guidelines to Participate
         Have functional and comfortable shoulder and elbow motion.
         Able to tolerate 5 minutes of movement in the water, or 15 minutes standing or walking on land without excessive pain,
          fatigue, or shortness of breath.
         Require no more than minimal assistance to enter or exit the pool.
         Feel comfortable and confident in the water.

Just about anyone can play this sport—a person who has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair (power or manual), people
without disabilities, and family and friends. We have extra sports wheelchairs available for anyone that doesn’t have their own
so that anyone can participate in this “pick-up” style game. Wheelchair football is a very inclusive game and accommodates
athletes of all abilities. Each Saturday the rules will be adapted to fit the group that comes to play, allowing everyone to be
included. Games are played in the gym at the LeBlond RecPlex.
