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.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
