If you do need
to contact me, email Charlie Dixon at
Please understand that I
receive hundreds of email each week and only have so much time to
respond to email as this web page is just a hobby of mine.
Can you tell me the address for NCTRC, ATRA,
etc? Go to the TR Organizational page
Where can I find assessment resources?
Go to MEMBERS ONLY SECTION, then TRnet and then
click on Assessments once you gain access to .
For a listing of colleges with TR programs go to www.recreationtherapy.com/trcollg.htm.

If you locate any error at the TR Directory, please inform me at .
I will try to correct the problem as soon as I receive your email.
This includes typos, spelling errors, grammer errors. I won't,
however, correct spelling errors of bulletin board or guestbook postings
made by other people.
If you are looking for an internship site, please go to the members only section and then to the TR Internship Directory. I do
not have any more information than what is posted at the TR Internship
Directory. Please don't ask me to send you an email when I find an
internship that matches your needs... I do not keep track of the postings
at the TR Internship Directory nor do I maintain a separate list.
If you do not see an internship posting for the area that you are
interested in, your best bet would be to go to the library, get a
phone book for the city you are interested in and open the yellow
pages for a listing of psychiatric, rehab, LTC, etc facilities.
Please don't email me with request for job leads....
Please go to the TR
Jobs page and many of the major job bulletin found on-line. Do note that
many agencies do not post job openings anywhere. Many times they have
openings and go through their list of applicants who sent in resumes.
Your best bet would be to identify agencies that have RT positions
and send in a resume.

PRINTING FROM THE ACTIVITIES
print from the activities pages." The problem lies
within your browser. I have printed activity pages from the Therapeutic Recreation Directory's
activity pages without problem from many different printers, browsers
and computers. Some did not print properly and after tweaking the
browser, I was able to print them out without problem.
1st, try right clicking
on the web page, and click print. If this doesn't work, take a look
at your browser options.
If you have Internet Explorer it should
print out properly, If not click View, then Internet Options, then click on the
Advanced tab and scroll down to where it says Printing. Be sure the
box next to Print background colors and images is unchecked.
You can also save the pages
to your computer and remove the formatting so that you remove the
dark background and change the text to black. Then print it out.
You can also cut and paste
the text to your word processor if none of the above options work
"I'm embarrassed to say but
I lost my password." If you lost your password
or User ID to the Internship Site, send an email to .
you lost your password or User ID to the TR Address Book, you
can go to the members only section and click on the LOST PASSWORD link from the Address Book and your password will be automatically emailed to you.
should take note that passwords and usernames are always case sensitive.
That is, cdixon is not that same as Cdixon. The easiest thing to do
is to always keep your user ID and password at lowercase. A mixture
of upper case and lower case is too difficult to remember.
ME FROM YOUR MAILING LIST
be removed from the TR Directory's Mailing List, go to the Privacy page and enter your name in the box provided for TR Directory Mailing
have your name and info removed from other sections of the TR Directory,
please give me the complete name of the web page and the information
that you want removed by emailing me at .
I do not post resumes at the TR Directory... I used to but
it was too time consuming for me. However, I do list links to resumes
that you have posted elsewhere.
If you have activity ideas, forms, articles, etc to post, please send
them via email or email with attached file. I prefer Word for
Windows format for attached files.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Therapeutic Recreation Directory, please
contact me... I can surely use your help!
WHO'S IN CHARGE OF THE
