The program opens new opportunities for kids to engage in a groundbreaking robotic LEGO experience. Through the program, children and youth will develop and refine decision-making and socialization skills, all while making friends. With the support of a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, this program is intended to be therapeutic and goal oriented in nature. The program is led by Holland Bloorview staff, Bloorview Research Institute engineers, and FIRST Robotics Canada staff in a group environment with specialized supports and adaptations available.
Please note that one-on-one support is not provided. If a participant requires dedicated one-on-one support, the family will be asked to provide it. Please contact us if you are unsure whether your child needs additional support.
