Vecova Recreation Centre caters to pre-school children. We have playschool programs, arts and dance classes plus a variety of introduction to sport programs. It’s a fun place for your child to be exposed to a variety of sports and learn some basic skills.
Developmental Coordination Disorder: What does it mean?
Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a delay in the development of motor skills. People with DCD have difficulty coordinating motor skills and movements, which affects the performance of everyday tasks and sport skills.
About the Empower Abilities Program
Empower Abilities is a program for children and youth (4 to 21 years of age) with mild to moderate motor delays and disabilities. The program assists them in developing the capacity, skill and confidence for community sport, fitness and recreational activities.
Would Empower Abilities be a good program for my child?
Does your child:
· Have difficulty coordinating movements?
· Have delays in certain motor skills (i.e., bike riding, ball catching)?
· Have difficulty with activities that require constant changes in body position?
· Have difficulties with activities that require coordination of both sides of the body?
If you answered yes to most of these questions then our program may be for you!
What’s the next step?
To be accepted into the program, your child must be assessed by our physical therapist to determine fit with the Empower Abilities program.
Contact EmpowerAbilities@vecova.ca to learn more about pricing and to book an assessment.
