Therapeutic Recreation Consultants:
Playing with a purpose!

Therapeutic Recreation Consultants is one of the oldest and most-respected providers of RT services in North Carolina. We were trailblazers when we started providing North Carolina schools with RT services over a decade ago. We’re proud to have helped many children and adults find constructive ways to express themselves through leisure and interpersonal skills.

Our RT specialists are well-trained and fully licensed with the state of North Carolina.

Barbara L. Kneher MS, LRT/CTRS, Owner

As the parent of a child with special needs myself, I understand the challenges that families face when meeting their child’s complex needs: school, therapies, other services, and their parents’ work schedules. When does a kid get to be a kid today?

Because of this, I have a special interest in the social & play skills of children with autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, ADHD, behavioral disorders and mental illness. My goal is to help your child have a childhood by providing quality RT services.

And I practice what I preach, too: I believe fully in the importance of leisure interests for the health of the mind, body and soul. I’m an avid photographer, play in a band with my husband, and enjoy swimming, the beach and the arts.
