Adapted Physical Activity for Kids

The Adapted Physical Activity for Kids (APAK) program offers children 4-14 years old with special needs the opportunity to gain independence and health benefits in an encouraging and understanding environment.  Children are paired one on one with a volunteer who will work toward pre-determined movement and social goals. This class is designed to introduce children to fundamental movement skills in a fun environment. All abilities are welcome! The goal of this class is to introduce your child to physical activity at whatever level of adaptation (physical or cognitive) is required.

The program was founded by Dr. Lisa Daroux-Cole and is currently coordinated by Heather Leitner, B.Sc. Kinesiology.

All participants (including returning participants) must register and complete the Intake Form prior to September 14th, 2018 https://goo.gl/forms/EeYFhrXNDpmiMv0p1
