From kayaking and biking to golf and fishing, adaptive sports and recreational activities are an important part of our clients' rehabilitation and recovery. Being physically active not only helps clients improve strength and fitness, but it can have a positive impact on their overall well-being and quality of life.
“Participation in sports and recreation can speed the recovery process, and it shows our clients that their disability doesn’t have to keep them from an active and enjoyable lifestyle,” said Special Tree Recreational Therapist Kristin Claerhout, who organizes Special Tree adaptive golf program. Special Tree’s Recreational Therapists encourage clients to explore new activities as well as return to activities they enjoyed before their injury and work with each client to find the most appropriate activity for their interests, capabilities, and needs.

The highlight of Discover Summer is always a big road trip to Mackinaw Island that Children’s Services Managers Derica Scribner and Christine Morabito plan for clients. This summer, they decided to surprise the kids with a trip to Niagara Falls, but kept the trip destination a big secret until it was time to hit the road.

Clients from Special Tree’s Day Treatment Services hit the road to enjoy a Toledo Mud Hens game on June 25th and to raise awareness for aphasia, a condition that affects one’s ability to communicate verbally following a TBI or stroke. The game had special meaning for DTS Manager Neal Dregansky whose mother, Melodie Dregansky, helped plan the event through the DaZy Aphasia Centre, a speech therapy clinic she helped co-found that specializes in treating aphasia. Special Tree Medical Director Dr. Dregansky also joined his family for the event.
