Effect of a Child-Controlled Robot on Mother’s Communicative Dominance during Play Interaction with a Child with Cerebral Palsy: a Case StudyDownload
Children who have severe physical disabilities often have great difficulty interacting and learning through play, and their expressive language is commonly limited. During play, mothers are frequently more directive in their interaction with children with disabilities. This might change if the...
The influence of organizational context on the use of research by nurses in Canadian pediatric hospitals.Download
Background Organizational context is recognized as an important influence on the successful implementation of research by healthcare professionals. However, there is relatively little empirical evidence to support this widely held view. Methods The objective of this study was to identify...
A School-Based Randomized Controlled Trial to Improve Physical Activity among Iranian High School GirlsDownload
Background: Physical activity (PA) rates decline precipitously during the high school years and are consistently lower among adolescent girls than adolescent boys. Due to cultural barriers, this problem might be exacerbated in female Iranian adolescents. However, little intervention research has...
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are said to interpret language literally. If so, they would have trouble understanding figurative language, independent of their language level. Idioms (e.g. “skating on thin ice”) are a type of figurative language that are used frequently. In this...
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down Syndrome
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down SyndromeDownload
The purpose of this study was to develop a pilot listening task designed to examine pre- and post-treatment intelligibility ratings, as well as error patterns, following intensive voice treatment (LSVT®LOUD), in a group of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and another group of children with Down...
Understanding implementation processes of clinical pathways and clinical practice guidelines in pediatric contexts: A study protocolDownload
Background: Canada is among the most prosperous nations in the world, yet the health and wellness outcomes of Canadian children are surprisingly poor. There is some evidence to suggest that these poor health outcomes are partly due to clinical practice variation, which can stem from failure to...
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) proves to have great potential for investigating the white matter network of the brain. The ability to study these pathways may offer important insight into the neurological differences of people with communication disorders. However, due to the high level of...
The iconic gesture used by two-year-old children is indicative of their knowledge and communicative abilities about objects and events. In this study, this knowledge was tested by studying the gesture produced by children with multiple language exposure and children with exposure to only one...
The prevalence and determinants of use of vitamin D supplements among children in Alberta, Canada: A cross-sectional studyDownload
Background Limited cutaneous synthesis due to low sun exposure and inadequate dietary intake makes vitamin D supplementation a necessity for many Canadian children. Identification of the factors associated with supplement use is necessary for public health awareness campaigns, but they have not...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2016: The goal of this project is to develop foundational knowledge on the applicability of the learning perspective to account for interference phenomena when children perform language activities. We expect to learn more about the appropriateness of interpreting interference...
