Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent, Ontario
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the Adapted Swim Program at the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent. The Centre offers a full range of services for families with children who have physical, developmental or communication challenges. Services range from physiotherapy, audiology, and speech therapy to social and recreational programming. The Adapted Swim Program allows children to participate in leisure activities while still working toward therapy goals such as low-impact strength building. Children at the Treatment Centre learn pool safety and basic swimming skills with the support of Adapted Recreation therapists. Swimmers also have year-round access to the Centre’s hydrotherapy pool where they can continue to enjoy physical activity in the water once their lessons come to an end. Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will go towards specialized staffing and a variety of toys and equipment to keep participants engaged and having fun in the pool.
