SSHRC IG awarded 2018: This project will test how children develop the ability to convey viewpoint in gestures. Children's language learning has been shown to be inextricably intertwined with their use of gestures. We expect that children's choice of viewpoint in gestures will change as they get...
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...
The prevalence and determinants of adequate vitamin D intake and supplementation among Canadian childrenDownload
Most Canadian children are not meeting the dietary recommendations for vitamin D and have not enough sun exposure to synthesize vitamin D in their skin. Vitamin D supplementation therefore seems a necessity. However, no study has examined whether vitamin D from diet and supplements combined is...
Social Inclusion/Exclusion: Parents and Grandparents Participating in Community Development in Rural AlbertaDownload
Social inclusion/exclusion (SI/SE) has been described as a social determinant of health and an urgent matter of social (in)justice. SI/SE involves dynamic relational processes and structures that enable or constrain participation in community life. Many low-income families report barriers to...
Longitudinal and cross-sectional associations between physical activity, screen time, and fitness in a sample of young children from Edmonton, CanadaDownload
Background: High fitness is associated with several positive health outcomes; however, fitness of Canadian children has declined over the past two decades. Correlates of fitness in children under 10 years of age are relatively unexplored, and few studies involving young children have looked at...
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...
Sleep and children with cerebral palsy: A review of current evidence and environmental non-pharmacological interventionsDownload
Between 23%–46% of children with cerebral palsy experience sleep problems. Many of the sensory-motor and cognitive features of cerebral palsy (such as immobility, pain, and seizures) act as predisposing factors for sleep problems in this population. This paper presents the background related to...
Measurements of Total Aerosol Deposition and Validation of Airway Resistance Models in Anatomically Realistic Intrathoracic Conducting Airway Replicas of ChildrenDownload
One objective of this research was to obtain a correlation that quantitatively predicts micrometer-sized aerosol particle deposition in the upper conducting airways (trachea to generation 3) of children. Experiments were conducted using steady inhalation air flow rates to measure the deposition...
