KidsAbilty Centre for Child Development- Ontario, Waterloo
Children with special needs have a difficult time learning recreation skills such as skating, due to challenges such as balance and coordination, motor impairments and lack of specialized equipment. SkateAble offers skating instruction either individually or to small groups based on the participant’s needs and skills. Adapted equipment, specialized skating aids and adapted skates are available to maximize success. Children learning to skate in this program will have further opportunities for participation through continued skill development, special hockey teams, joining peers on skating outings and enjoying skating as part of a family recreation activity.
This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of the GoodLife Fitness Club Services Department.
