"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Absolutely Awesome

That would be the IWK Pediatric Rehabilitation Department's 2010 Winter Program Catalogue.

There are activities and programs for both physically and mentally challenged youth and their parents/caregivers.

Here's just a sample
  • a workshop for children with brothers and sisters with special needs;

  • a new sexual education program teaching lessons, facilitating activities and leading discussions covering a variety of issues related to sexual health such as self-image, dating and relationships, emotions, sexual identity, and safe practices;

  • the January - May 2010 Launch Program (for caregivers of challenged youth in junior or senior high school);

  • a preschool leisure program; and

  • and a six-week Junket of food and fun (learning how to plan, shop for, and prepare healthy snacks and meals)
This looks like really good stuff. Check it out.

Oh, yeah. The registration form can be found here.
