PADDLE Program

WHAT IS PADDLE?
PADDLE is a not-for-profit organization that provides adults with special needs opportunities and choices in learning experiences and community involvement. Participants of PADDLE include individuals who have developmental disabilities, are no longer able to attend school due to their age, want to participate in a community-based program and wish to continue their education in a program that will account for their needs and interests.

PADDLE-Providing Adults with Developmental Disabilities Lifelong Experiences. Join our page and become a fan of PADDLE and get updates about our coming events!

When a child with a developmental disability or special needs becomes an adult (age 21), many of the services and supports available to them stop. PADDLE is one of the few programs in our community which offers adults with developmental disabilities continued support and choices to enhance their quality of life. PADDLE allows North Bay to identify itself as an inclusive, caring community.

PADDLE was started by a group of parents frustrated with the lack of services available for their adult children with disabilities. Through this frustration, and love for their family members, this group of parents created the vision of PADDLE - a day program that would provide their adult children and other adults with disabilities the opportunity to continue having supports, continue their education, and continue living meaningful lives.
Currently the PADDLE program has 23 participants and continues to grow each year. The program is made to be flexible, adaptive, inclusive and responsive to individual needs. The activities at PADDLE are designed around four core sections: academics, physical fitness, life skills and recreation/leisure. Activities include: attending the YMCA, math & money class, computers, going to the mall, music class, skating, attending One Kid’s Place, practicing life skills such as laundry and food preparation and more.

TESTIMONIALS
“PADDLE is important to me because my dad built it for me and my friends. Some people do not have dads like mine so I am happy he could help them. My dad has since died of cancer and it means a lot to me to be here and remember him and see

To offer a structured, meaningful, inclusive and community-based environment where dependent developmentally challenged adults continue to thrive and grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually.
