Recreation (Sec. 300.34(c)(11))

Comment: A few commenters requested modifying the definition of recreation to include therapeutic recreation services provided by a qualified recreational therapist, which include services that restore, remediate, or rehabilitate to improve functioning and independence, and reduce or eliminate the effects of illness or disability.

Discussion: We do not believe it is necessary to change the definition of recreation as recommended by the commenters because the definition is sufficiently broad to include the services mentioned by the commenters.

Changes: None.
