Editorial Reviews

Review

"I love the categorization of topics, especially the breakdown and coverage of the disability areas. The 'study questions' and 'practical experiences to enhance student objectives' at the end of chapters are so helpful in class/assignment planning." --Emily Hayden, Springfield College

"I appreciate the newer pictures throughout the text, the updated e-sources, and the introductory chapters 1-3. The updated version is a refreshing contribution to our curriculum. I also appreciated the term 'intellectual disabilities' in lieu of mental retardation." --Robin Lombardo, St. Joseph's College, Long Island

"I was pleasantly surprised with all of the faculty support material included in the new, Fourth Edition." --Jerry Jordan, Oklahoma State University --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

If I had to recommend a beginners book for Therapeutic Recreation I would most definitely recommend this book because of its easy reading. As a beginner you want something that is interesting and easy to understand and with this book you get all of that and more.

I thought this was a good text for my Intro class. I wish I hadn't sold it back after the semester. I re bought this text to study for my CTRS exam. It has proved invaluable.

I ordered this becasue the book was not available in the book store in my school. It is a required text, but I see myself using this book going into the profession itself. I wont be selling this book back.

The book is advertised as the fourth edition so I thought that was what I would receive but it was not. Needed the forth edition for class not the original. They have different content.
