Client Assessment in Therapeutic Recreation Services fills a gap in the therapeutic recreation literature concerning client assessment. It educates the reader about the importance of client assessment; how assessment relates to treatment planning and programming; and ways to improve the process of data collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting. Client assessment plays an important role in the placement of clients into therapeutic recreation programs appropriate to meet their needs.
