Jooay App: Promoting Participation in Leisure


Valérie Grand'Maison

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. We created “Jooay,” a mobile and web-based app, to provide families with information about appropriate leisure activities available in communities across Canada. In this project, we are seeking ways to optimize the use of this technology, to increase its use for more children and families, and to use it as a tool to inform policy and community changes.
