Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Exercise and Disability

I ran across an article on the Mayo Clinic web site titled, "Exercise and disability: Physical activity is within your reach." The article provides exercise tips for persons with disabilities. In case you would like to read it, the web site for the article is:

Off of the "Exercise and Disability" article are links to two related articles. They are: "Fitness programs: 5 steps to get started" and "Exercise: 7 benefits of regular physical activity."

I hope that recreational therapists are providing their clients with exercise programs as there are so many benefits -- such as "fighting" Parkinson's (see the previous post).
