RTs ranked # 1 least likely to be computerized out of 702 occupations!

Forbes (2014, Feb.) published an article about a study on fields that are most likely and least likely to be replaced by computers.

The 2013 American Therapeutic Recreation Association’s annual conference in Pittsburg offered a specialized track with applied technology in rec. therapy.
