Easter Seals Ontario - Recreation and Camps

About

Camp holds a multitude of physical and emotional benefits including the development of social skills, independence, self-esteem and confidence. For a child with a physical disability, improvement of these developmental traits is imperative to their growth. A summer camp experience allows a child to discover new physical capabilities while making friends, trying new activities, and navigating a world designed for their special needs.

While camp is a great experience, it is not for everyone. Campers live in a group setting with many other children/youth who also have a physical disability. The setting will be quite active and campers need to be able to successfully function in such an environment. To best determine a camper’s eligibility and appropriateness, Easter Seals staff will carefully review each camper’s application prior to acceptance. The camp’s nursing facilities are limited and by the nature of camp, are remotely located. Camp is typically NOT able to meet the needs of children/youth who require skilled nursing care.

Canada's National Ballet School

About

The NBS Adaptive Dance Program was developed in consultation with Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. The program is led by a NBS Community Dance Specialist and supported by a Therapeutic Support Staff. The classes are designed to share the physical, emotional and social benefits of dance with children living with diverse physical, developmental and sensory needs.
Our programming provides two streams to meet the needs of our community: 

Creative 1 (ages 4-18)
This stream provides 1:1 support throughout the duration of class and moves at a slower pace with the aid of a visual schedule. These 45-minute sensory-friendly dance classes provide opportunities for children to explore creative expression through movement, music, and tactical props, such as drums, scarves and rhythm sticks. The goal of this class is learning to follow a class structure with the support of a visual schedule, providing opportunities for interaction and engagement with peers and using imagery and dance to support the development of large and fine motor skills.


Creative 2 (Ages 4-18)
This stream is a moderate to fast-paced class and a good fit for children who are both ready and working towards two-step instructions and participating independently in programming with the aid of social stories and visual schedules. The goal of this class is to provide opportunities for socialization with peers and learning to work with other dancers, for example, taking turns and following along with the class activity. This class places a large focus on creative expression and imaginative storytelling through dance.

ParaSport Ontario

About

ParaSport Ontario is a non-profit organization that supports all members of the disability community in finding their sport or activity of choice. We not only try to connect the disability community to find para sport opportunities in their region but we also try to connect all parasport and adapted activity/fitness organizations to become more streamlined and less fragmented. This is done through our website and our Resource Hub which houses all of this information for people to come to as a one-stop-shop and access all the information and resources about finding the parasport/activity opportunity that is right for them and in their region. We also have a Play to Podium fund where people can apply for funding to purchase adapted equipment to remove the barrier of participation to that adapted parasport of choice if needed and have equipment rentals too.
