Welcome to KidsAction Coaching

The KidsAction Coaching approach provides personalized, child-centered coaching and resources for physical activity practice at home. This evidence-based approach also promotes social interaction and a sense of community among children and families. KidsAction was developed to be complementary to the practices and methods already present.

A Unique Approach

KidsAction Coaching was developed based on years of research at UBC to identify the needs of families of children with neurodevelopmental and/or intellectual disabilities (NDID), and those of community-based physical activity programs serving them. KidsAction was developed to support children’s physical and social development, and to benefit their mental and emotional well-being. KidsAction was developed to be complementary to the practices already present in already existing physical activity programs and is offered free of charge.
