Participation in Leisure and Sporting Activities for Children with Disabilities
CanChild has some excellent resources to help parents and youth encourage participation in leisure and sporting activities for children with disabilities.
There is a participation knowledge hub with suggestions and hand outs to assess different activities.
There is also several printable worksheets to help children decide what activities to participate in and what adaptations may be necessary. You can view those tip sheets here for art lessons, swimming, music, hockey, group activities and a general form for any activity.
Certainly worth a look if you are a pediatric occupational, physical or speech therapist! Thanks CanChild (which is an amazing website).
