Bertha Schlotter was a pioneer in the field of recreational therapy. As a member of the Illinois Department of Public Welfare, she studied the role that recreation could play in the treatment of people with developmental disabilities. To this end, she documented the results of a three-year project to study the use of recreation therapy at the Lincoln (Ill.) State School and Colony for the Mentally Retarded. The results were published as An Experiment in Recreation with the Mentally Retarded.
