Parental Experiences of a Parent-assisted Social Skills Intervention for Adolescents with Autism Spectrum DisorderDownload
The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS) is a parent-assisted social skills program for teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In the PEERS program, the parents play a vital role in supporting and coaching their teen’s skill development. The purpose of this...
This research challenges the notion of evaluation as being necessarily reductive, judgmental and often leading to ill-fated results by using creative methods to evaluate a nonprofit arts-based children's program. Using photography as an ethnographic approach to form the basis of in-depth...
A population-based comparison of injuries among farm children to non-farm children in Alberta, 1999-2010
A population-based comparison of injuries among farm children to non-farm children in Alberta, 1999-2010Download
Objectives - To systematically review literature on rural-urban differences in pediatric injury incidence and to examine incidence of all-cause injury, agricultural injury, and injury-related health care utilization for farm children compared to several groups of non-farm children under 18 years...
Diabetes is a growing public health issue in Canada, and this concern is now extending to children and adolescents. Our goal was to conduct research projects aimed at pediatric diabetes surveillance in Alberta, Canada. To identify diabetes cases, we applied the National Diabetes Surveillance...
The effects of vocal loudness and speaking rate on voice-onset time in typically developing children and children with cochlear implantsDownload
This study explores the effects of manipulating vocal loudness and speech rate on voice onset time (VOT) in normal hearing children and two children with cochlear implants (CIs). 15 normal hearing participants and two participants with CIs produced all six stop consonants in the phrase “It’s a...
Respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory adjustments to changes in vocal loudness in typically developing children and children with spastic-type cerebral palsyDownload
This study explored the physiological adjustments made by the speech mechanism when sustained maximum phonations and sentences differing in vocal loudness were produced by typically developing children and children with cerebral palsy (CP). Respiratory adjustments (lung volume initiation,...
"You meant to do that:" Examining reactive and proactive aggression and their relations to social and emotional correlatesDownload

Highly structured school-based interventions have shown promise in reducing risk factors for obesity in children. However, challenges exist with the sustainability of these kinds of programs and little is known about the potential for less structured interventions to effect change on behaviours...
Examination of Cerebral Hemodynamics of School-Aged Children Who Do and Do Not Stutter During Reading: a Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Pilot StudyDownload
This exploratory pilot study examined the reliability of using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to evaluate cerebral hemodynamic responses of oxygenated hemoglobin (HbO2), deoxygenated hemoglobin (HHb), hemoglobin difference (HbDiff) and total hemoglobin (tHb) in the left inferior...
