This sometimes is the only place to find postings for RT/TR positions with the State of NC. It is recommended that a LRT (licensed recreational therapist) or LRTA (licensed recreational therapy assistant) look for positions classified under Recreation Therapy.

Up until December 2009 State Recreation Therapy departments and other State agencies also employed staff under the titles of rehabilitation therapists or rehabilitation therapy coordinators. Those positions did not require the same skills as an LRT and were not equivalent to recreation therapy positions. In North Carolina, only an LRT or LRTA can deliver recreational therapy services.

The LRTA may wish to look for positions classified as recreation therapy assistants.
