Game On is run as a six week program in London, Ontario, with reoccurring sessions throughout the year. This professionally developed program helps children with neurological conditions improve their physical coordination and learn skills that are important when participating in gym class, recreation and sports activities.
Game On is designed to support children with neurological conditions who may be reluctant to participate in physical activities and sports. We work with families to provide barrier-free recreational programming for all participants. The program is designed to be fun, safe, and inclusive for all children with all abilities.
Saturday mornings, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm (snacks and drinks provided)

"The Game On program provides my daughter with a physical activity program that she can do at her own pace and ability level. She wasn't ready or able to develop these skills when and how her peers did. Most importantly, other kids in the program have seizures too and this allows her to feel safe and accepted and normal. She can see that epilepsy is a part of life for other kids and that she and they can continue to play in fun, active ways."

"I am most impressed with the volunteers' positive energy and flexibility at adapting to individual interests. I feel confident that my son is well taken care of while improving his gross motor skills in a fun atmosphere!"
