SPORT AND RECREATION
Participating in sports and other leisure activities is an important part of childhood development; however, accessing appropriate activities and information is a challenge for children with disabilities. ChildBright investigators Dr Keiko Shikako-Thomas and Dr Annette Majnemer created “Jooay,” a mobile and web-based app, to provide families with information about appropriate leisure activities available in communities across Canada. Jooay optimizes the use of technology, to increase its use for more children and families, and to use it as a tool to inform policy and community changes.
