What does each session offer?

Power For All is pleased to offer adapted adventure opportunities for all individuals with physical, cognitive and psycho-social challenges. Sessions are delivered by a registered occupational therapist. Efforts are made to use adventure as an innovative medium for therapy. Many clients in our programs have tried Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Kayaking for the first time and they have reported to feel “a sense of mastery and normalizing of ability”. Clinicians have complimented our organization for the purposeful selection of quality equipment and teaching approaches. The variety of devices and teaching adaptations we use enable clients to practice physical activities essential to daily living such as seating, feeding, transferring, activity endurance, to name a few. These are all instrumental skills for the job of living. Additionally, if you are working with a treatment team in the community or at school, we are happy to collaborate with them to continue to help clients achieve their treatment goals as they participate in our paddling programs.

We sincerely hope that you consider our programs as a therapeutic medium for your clients to continue to grow, develop and progress in their treatment goals.

What kind of adaptations are made?

Adaptations are made for physical, cognitive and psycho-social challenges.
