“We need Ability Camp to Rescue Special Needs Kids” – Doc Meek

It’s nothing short of tragic that Kevin Hickling’s great work for special needs children at Ability Camp may come to an end!

As a Neurological Learning Specialist I know how good Kevin’s Conductive Education and Hyperbarics are!

Please help Kevin continue to rescue children and adults if you are able!

Dear Parents,

Ability Camp Inc. has been around for almost two decades helping children with special needs and adults that have suffered a Stroke.

Due to declining enrolment it breaks our hearts that this November 18 – December 20, 2013 class may be our last session.  That being said, if you or a friend were thinking about coming to see us but were waiting for the right time, I would urge you to consider this upcoming session.

Right now we are making an offer for anyone who brings their child for this next Conductive Education class would receive FREE HYPERBARICS (Saving you over $4,000).  This will be a very small class with a lot of personal attention.

For families that have been here before or families wishing to come, we have set up a fundraising page where people can donate to try and keep  us around and continue to help more families.

If you would like to help us by spreading the donation information, or make a donation yourself, please follow this link: http://www.gofundme.com/50n69c

If we do not get more children in this next class or get enough donations you will not get an option of coming later.

Please call us right away to book.  Our toll free number 1-800-442-6992. I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity!  We still have a lot left to teach and even more to help.

If you have any more questions please feel free to contact me.

  • “We are thrilled that the ACT was again able to raise money for WellChild at its Annual Dinner and guests can be sure that the money which they raised will be put to good use supporting seriously ill children and their families,” he said.

  • jane:

    Not too sure about this program. I understand they are not well organized, nor have their programs under control as well as getting out their reports on time to the clients. a bit Leary. A few families had said that their money wad never returned nor their deposits were granted to a later date.

    Thank you,
    A concerned patent

  • sue:

    I’ve had my mom attend this program for about 7yrs with my son. Great program, but Jane is right. Reports are not done on a timely manner nor is there any communications with Mr.. Kevin H. During our stay….

  • Hi Jane, Thank you for your input. I have no knowledge about the timeliness of reports. I will look into it. What I do know for sure is that the combined HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen) and conductive education benefit kids who are not able to benefit otherwise. Most programs have only one or the other of these two combined treatments, and both are needed in order for the kids to get optimal benefit. Thanks for writing. – Doc Meek, Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, Sun, Oct 26, 2014

  • Hi “Ssimmets,” I’m glad you are commenting on the Ability Camp program. I know it’s great for kids. I will check into your concerns. In case you haven’t seen my reply to Jane, I am appending here below. Thank you for writing. – Doc Meek, Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, Sun, Oct 26, 2014

  • Bill:

    My son attended in 2013. Excellent program with great conductors. Kevin did seem a little disorganized and the reports were late. But I didn’t need to see a report to tell that this combined Conductive Education and HBOT program did amazing things for my son and every other child that attended with him.

  • Hi Bill,
    Thank you for your good comments about the value of combined “Conductive Education and HBOT [hyperbaric oxgyen therapy].”
    In Gratitude,
    Doc Meek

    Bien cordialement.

  • raya:

    is ability camp still operating, and serving kids with cerebral palsy?
    and is so – where is it located?

  • Hi Raya,


    I have not been able to communicate with the operator of “Ability Camp” in Ontario for some time now. I assume they were forced to close for lack of funds.

    The presumed closure was/is tragic, because the combination of HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) and conductive exercises that Ability Camp offered was unbeatable anywhere. Many children greatly benefited!

    Dr. Gordon Ward, Director, Canadian Hyperbarics, located at the Edmonton General Hospital, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, does offer HBOT for patients with cerebral palsy.
    He does not offer the conductive exercises, however.

    You may wish to email Dr. Ward to ascertain what adjunctive therapies he does offer in conjunction with HBOT:
