entucky Governor Matt Bevin vetoed a bill that would have allowed for Recreational Therapists to be licensed.
I [Danny Pettry] personally believe that most people are good people who want to do good deeds. I don’t think anyone who works as a recreational therapist would intentionally do harm to a student/ client/ patient.
The license helps to protect people from unintentional harm.
A recreational therapist has been trained to work with people with various disabling conditions and illnesses. Furthermore, a license recreational therapist would have been required by law to meet requirements indicating that an individual has met the minimum requirements to practice.
I sure hope no individual is unintentionally harmed by anyone working in Kentucky as a Recreational Therapist.
Danny’s advice: keep persisting Kentucky. and Go Cats!
