Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre - Ontario, Ottawa
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the Run Jump Throw program at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre. Offered as part of the Recreation Therapy Program, Run Jump Throw is designed to teach fundamental movement skills that form the basis of many different sports such as basketball, track & field and baseball. For children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, trying new things can be overwhelming. A high staff-client ratio, use of adaptive equipment and opportunities to engage with the wider community make this program unique. Over the course of 8 weeks, children with autism will be inspired to engage in a healthy active lifestyle and will be prepared to participate more fully in recreational activities in their community.
