Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre- Ontario, Ottawa
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre’s Recreation Therapy Program.
The Recreation Therapy Program helps children and youth with physical and developmental disabilities develop the skills they need to successfully participate in community physical and recreation activities, so they become active and contributing members of their communities.
Give It a Go and Trailblazer programs offer children ages 6 – 18 the opportunity to try different adapted sports and recreational activities like water-skiing, para-canoeing, dance and yoga. Run, Jump, Throw and Run, Jump, Throw, Wheel focus on the development of fundamental movement skills. Opportunities for children and youth with disabilities to engage in physical activity are limited. However, they benefit greatly from programs which support their skill development in order to participate in sport and recreation.
Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will enable the program to continue to provide effective, affordable and exciting programs.
