Go Baby Go
Go Baby Go Toddler Mobility Program
For children living without disabilities, technology makes things easier. For children living with disabilities, technology makes things possible!
Go Baby Go supports children with limited mobility using ride on adaptive toy cars with push button switches, supportive seating and communication devices to provide opportunities for children to move independently in ways that they otherwise would not be able to do on their own.
This program is a fun non-stigmatizing way for children who are not independently mobile to engage in play while experiencing therapeutic benefits, building muscle control and muscle memory and learning about their environment.
Variety Alberta currently helps support the Getting Ready For Inclusion Today‘s GBG program, where we offer funding support that has gone towards:
Purchasing two GBG vehicles for the program;
Purchasing all adaptive equipment needed for these two vehicles to support the needs of the children in the program;
Rental of facility to run the GBG program; and
Funding support towards the Occupational Therapist hours during GBG programming.
Go Baby Go as seen on the Calgary Children’s Foundation Telethon December 2018:
Our vision with the GBG sponsorship is to have participating organization branding on the GBG cars with company sticker placed on the car(s) (similar to NASCAR). We will also be creating annual GBG graduation certificates for the children who are engaged in the program and issuing mini driver’s licenses that can be branded by company logos.
In addition, we will invite sponsors to come and participate in a community car building/modification day and be invited to gift the vehicle to the children who will be receiving a car. This will allow sponsors to meet the child(ren) they are supporting and see firsthand how important these mobile cars are to their growth and development.
