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.

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
