Feature of the Month: Special Accommodations

Feature of the Month: Special Accommodations

With many organizations preparing for Spring Break and Summer Camps, providing the best care and support to every family is top of mind. For participants that require specialized care, Adaptive Recreation staff need to have as much information as possible – this helps them prepare before a program starts, and ensures that they can help everyone safely participate in activities during the program.

This month, we’re introducing our new Special Accommodations module, which can be included as part of the standard ePACT process for any organization. This feature complements the collection and management of emergency information and important medical details, so that staff have everything they need to support their program members in one place.

Designed by Adaptive Rec specialists, the Special Accommodations module includes three categories of conditions, with the option to provide additional information for any condition:

  • Diagnosed Physical Conditions – this includes conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis, Autism, or Cerebral Palsy
  • Mental, Behavioural and Emotional Conditions – this includes conditions such as anxiety, depression, or ADD/ADHD
  • Other Physical Considerations – this includes weakness in extremities, paralysis, and the use of devices such as crutches, braces, or pacemakers, to name a few

Staff always have the option to view these critical details anytime, anywhere using the ePACT App.
