  • Virtual Reality among Individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental
           Disabilities: A Systematic Literature Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lindsey Ryan Oakes, Ph.D; LRT/CTRS
      Abstract: With the capability of virtual reality (VR) interventions outside the field of therapeutic recreation to produce meaningful outcomes in various domains for individuals with varying disabilities, it would be valuable to establish VR as an evidence-based therapeutic recreation practice that could greatly benefit individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD). This systematic literature review explores VR evidence-based practices with individuals with IDD in various fields. Twenty-two databases were searched in October 2020, and 32 articles were reviewed. Thematic topics included: VR increases skills; VR motivates; VR to support traditional services; most effective types of VR; suitability and accessibility of VR; complimentary support for VR implementation and successful engagement; VR challenges, lessons learned, and needed improvements; and full potential of VR not yet realized. Results revealed a variety of implications and future recommendations that support future research to test VR with individuals with IDD and establish evidence-based therapeutic recreation practice.

  • Summary of NCTRC Response to COVID-19 Related to Certification Standards,
           Interpretive Guidelines, and Financial Assistance Programs

      Authors: Anne Richard
      Abstract: To provide a measured, data-driven response to the changes COVID-19 brought about that also reflects the organizational mission of protecting the public, NCTRC used feedback and guidance from the profession, legal counsel, and accreditation bodies within the credentialing industry to increase access to certification and support for applicants and certificants. The NCTRC financial assistance programs were heavily promoted, and changes were made to certification standards and interpretive guidelines related to internships, access to the CTRS exam, and options to regain certification for those outside the re-entry period.

  • Perceived Competence in NCTRC Job Domains among Therapeutic Recreation
           Interns during COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Heather Bright, Lauren Cripps, Brent Hawkins, Sarah Moore, Laura McLachlin, Anne-Marie Sullivan, Susan Purrington
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic caused many internships during the January 2020 semester to be shift ed to a virtual/remote format. Due to the unprecedented nature of this forced shift , there was minimal consistency in how virtual/remote internships were conducted. Using a cross-sectional design, this study aimed to summarize the experiences of RT/TR interns during the COVID-19 outbreak and assess their perceived competency in the NCTRC Job Task domains. A quantitative survey was developed for interns to self-assess their perceived competence in the ten domains. Interns reported being concerned about finishing their internship and graduating yet were satisfied with the amount of support received from their site and faculty supervisors. Interns perceived their highest competency in the areas of professional relationships and awareness and advocacy. Concerns are discussed regarding the inconsistent nature of remote internships during COVID-19, as well as implications for the profession and suggestions for future research in this area.

  • Examining Therapeutic Recreation Service Delivery for Adults with
           Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities in Community-Based Settings

      Authors: Lindsey Ryan Oakes; LRT/CTRS, Christel F. Massaad
      Abstract: With there being a nine-and-a-half percent increase in prevalence of intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) among children in the U.S. over nine years (i.e., 2009-2017; Zablotsky et al., 2019), the number of adults with IDD in our communities is growing and there is great potential for CTRS to produce multi-level and influential opportunities, outcomes, and benefits for adults with IDD through therapeutic recreation (TR) services in community-based settings. However, community-based settings is not a well-represented employment setting among CTRSs in the U.S. This mixed methods study aimed to identify best practices, barriers, and facilitators CTRSs experience when providing TR services to adults with IDD in community-based settings, as well as to examine how COVID has impacted TR service delivery and ideas for future provision of virtual TR services among these CTRSs. A total of 278 CTRSs across the country who work with adults with IDD in community-based settings completed a Qualtrics survey and 15 of these CTRS completed a follow-up, individual interview. Integrated data analysis revealed widespread impacts of COVID, lack of use of evidence-based practice, lack of involvement in evidence-based practice research, and need for standardized assessment and use of evidence-based practice to increase billing for TR services. Important implications for TR service delivery among adults with IDD in community-based settings were revealed, as well as directions for future research.

  • Stuck Inside: Impact of COVID-19 Countermeasures on Individuals with
           Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Role of Recreation Therapy
           Interventions—Call to Action

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ivanka Simić Stanojević, Jonathan Gerth, Jennifer Piatt
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic is having an immense worldwide impact on everyday activities, including social contact, especially for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Individuals with IDD are challenged because of their preexisting vulnerability to issues associated with loneliness that may increase with COVID-19 countermeasures. The purpose of this paper is to (1) briefl y review COVID-19 eff ects on loneliness of individuals with IDD, (2) identify promising in-person and telehealth RT interventions, and (3) suggest the need for recreational therapy evidence-based research and discussion to address COVID-19 consequences experienced by individuals with IDD.
