App features accessible activities

The Jooay App
Montreal - Wednesday, July 19, 2023

Jooay is a free mobile and web-based app ( that helps children with disabilities and their families find leisure activities that suit their accessibility needs in the location of their choice. It is also a community where parents, rehabilitation professionals and educators can connect, exchange and learn from each other. 

This app was developed at McGill University by Dr. Keiko Shikako and Dr. Annette Majnemer, occupational therapists and childhood disability researchers in collaboration with parents, rehabilitation professionals, policy makers, youth, physical educators and community partners. At Jooay you can find a list of more than 3,000 inclusive or adaptive leisure activities for children and youth of all abilities, from sports and arts classes to summer camps and inclusive playgrounds. To download Jooay, visit the App Store or Google Play. 

The Jooay App research group is currently creating game features so that everyone engages more with the app and with leisure in their communities as a consequence! They need the voices of parents, clinicians, educators, and youth with disabilities to help improve the app.
