SATURDAY THERAPEUTIC RECREATION PROGRAM (TRAC)

SATURDAY THERAPEUTIC RECREATION PROGRAM (TRAC)

Autism Services began its provision of services with the TRAC Program (Therapeutic Recreation for Children with Autism) in 1982. Since then, the agency has provided opportunities for learning, sharing, and growing within the Recreation Program.

TRAC is designed to help people with autism spectrum disorders develop recreational competence, leisure interests, and socialization skills within a loosely structured, relaxed environment.

Some common recreational activities at TRAC are:

  • Art
  • Sensory Activities
  • Gym
  • Cooking
  • Music
  • Holiday Parties
  • Picnics
  • Community Outings

TRAC meets, on average, 3 Saturdays a month from September through June. Parents and other family members are invited to attend events. TRAC sessions are often opportunities for the children and parents to meet new people and discover new experiences.
