Based on experience, the intern may also serve in a leadership role, as an instructor or facilitator. Interns also provide information on current trends in therapeutic recreation services, through projects, presentations, and staff in-services.
As an intern, you will be able to write an individualized plan of care for athletes based on assessed strengths and needs. This plan would include goals, objectives, and intervention strategies aimed at fostering desirable and necessary outcomes.
