Recreation

Recreation is important in promoting inclusion and quality of life. Studies have shown that it increases self-esteem and confidence, leads to improved communication, social interaction, and friendship skills.

The San Diego Regional Center supports clients having time to recreate and believes it is essential to a healthy and well-balanced life. Below are links to some popular recreation activities in the San Diego and Imperial Counties. However, SDRC does not endorse, nor provide funding for any recreation activity. SDRC is not liable for anything occurring while participating in any of the recreational activities.

Resounding joy Shine and Sing are dynamic, fun and therapeutic music therapy groups for children with medical diagnoses and their parents by Resounding Joy, a not-for-profit, San Diego-based music therapy company. Groups are created based on children’s needs and ages, and every group includes music therapy interventions to address their specific needs and goals. Parents and children are encouraged to interact, participate, play, and explore while working on physical, cognitive, emotional, and social goals.

Resounding Joy also offers individual sessions at both our Music Wellness Center in Sorrento Valley and in-home sessions for those who are not able to travel.

“Come make music with us today!” Contact Lindsay Zehren, MT-BC for more information at 858-457-2200 or email her at lzehren@resoundingjoyinc.org
