The primary responsibility of the Recreational Therapist will be to help clients with various developmental and physical disabilities through community based therapeutic recreation activities. The goal of the rec therapist is to use the community and leisure experiences to help clients reach their therapeutic goals by working with the client and his/her team.
We are seeking highly motivated, independent, and caring individuals who will service clients with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The population may include, but is not limited to: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Behavior/Mood Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Psychosis, ETC.
Projected income is based on the average salary of FBS therapists. Entry level therapist's rate is negotiable dependent on each individual's experience and education. Therapists have the ability to build a caseload to the size they prefer, so monthly income is ultimately dependent on how each contractor manages their schedule.
It is important to note that the State of Indiana is currently reevaluating the pay rate for all Music and Recreation Therapists; therefore, this entry level pay information is subject to increase in the very near future.
