Are you ready to trade your flip flops for
your back-to-school running shoes?

It’s that time of the year when we start dreaming of the wonderful ways our children can flourish in the new school year.

In order for a student to be fully included in the educational process and to reduce barriers to learning, parents work closely with school administration to maximize their child’s potential for lifelong learning. Knowing the value of education and the purpose of special education provides the basis for collaboration.

If your child has cerebral palsy and you are preparing for the new school year, visit MyChild™ for information on special education, including:

Health in Motion Rehabilitation to Hold Nutrition Workshop May 5, 2012

Did you know the body adjusts its biological rhythm according to the foods that we eat and the changes we experience in our environment? We’ve all heard that what we consume has a huge impact on our health and wellness, but did you know that in many different cultures, it’s no coincidence that fasting and omitting certain foods from our diet occurs when the seasons change? The body rids itself of toxins and prepares for changes in both the weather and availability of certain foods. Fascinating!

Want to learn more? Health in Motion Rehabilitation center located in Toronto, Ontario will be holding their “Special Needs Nutrition Workshop” between 11 a.m.and 12 p.m. on Saturday, May 5, at the Bathurst Medical Building. The free workshop will cover:

  • ways to improve digestion
  • insight on how certain foods can affect your child
  • tips for a healthy lifestyle
  • other nutrition related topics for children with special needs
