Dear Publisher: 

Fun Fact : Fun Fact: Recreational therapists provide services to help millions of people (as young as several months old with special needs to helping people in their hundreds). 

Truth: There isn't a book of stories about recreational therapies and these stories really need to be told and shared with the world. 

I feel confident that a positive-focused book-publisher would want these stories associated with their brand (opposed to them being published with a different publisher).

Is there any way you could help me (help us) recreational therapists to get these stories published. 

Recreational therapists (in general) are good-heaRTed and caring people. They purposely provide (recreation activities as a treatment) to help people with illnesses and disabling conditions to live fuller, more functioning, and independent lives. Examples: burn units for children, nursing homes, physical rehab hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and more.

I have started putting this book together. 

However, we don't have a publisher yet. 




Share the message. 

Here are some world-famous examples of Recreational Therapy stories:

·         Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer) had lost her arm in a shark attack. She  is known to volunteer with Access Surf, an organization provided by Recreational Therapists to help people

·         Jaycee Dugard was held captive for 18 years. She attributes horse-therapy as a major part of her healing. Her foundation provides funding so for animal therapy and other recreational therapies.

·         Aron Ralston is the author of “Stuck between a rock and a hard place.” He survived six days with his arm stuck under a bolder. He attributes his recreational therapist for teaching him how to use prosthetics and to get back out to daily functioning like driving a car, and eventually by to climbing.

·         What about the veterans who receive recreational therapy through wounded warriors?

 Recreational Therapist provide amazing services and their stories need to be told. 

Sincerely, Your friend,
