An Update for KidsAbility Families from Linda Kenny - CEO, KidsAbility

November 17, 2020

As you know, both Waterloo Region and Wellington County moved to “orange” status this week. This is, of course, concerning to everyone. It is very important that we all do our part to follow public health guidelines, requirements and advice to keep everyone safe and reduce the spread of this virus. At KidsAbility, our first priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone and we continue to monitor and adjust our plans as we go.

Virtual appointments continue to be the primary way in which our teams are working with children and families. We know that virtual therapy does not work for everyone and our teams continue to identify clients on a priority basis for face-to-face appointments as required.

Only families, clients and contracted vendors and interpreters who have scheduled appointments, are healthy and meet all of our screening protocols are permitted into KidsAbility at this time. If you have a family member or someone in your household that either has a confirmed case of COVID or are awaiting results from a COVID test, you must remain at home until a negative test result is received. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible and we are happy to do that.

If you are coming to KidsAbility for a scheduled face-to-face appointment, you will be asked to complete a pre-screening before your child’s appointment and also when you arrive. To make this process as smooth and as quick as possible, please fill out the following sheet, sign it and bring it with you to your child's appointment.

Our pool and our Resource Centres remain closed at this time. We continue to look at ways to offer some of these services in a safe way down the road and will keep you updated as we make changes to our programs and services.

We all have a role to play in keeping us all safe. Thank you for working with us to do your part. If you have questions or feedback, please reach out to us at 519-886-8886 or 1-886-372-2259 to speak with a member of our team.

Stay healthy and stay safe.
