Become a Research Participant
Help Kids Brain Health Network by participating in our research projects, and be a part of improving life for children with neurodisabilties and their families. KBHN funds critical research into the causes of and treatments for neurodisabilities in children, and aims to provide effective programs of support for their families and their communities. Some of these research projects require a range of participants, including people just like you. If we are actively looking for participants in a new upcoming research project, we will post a notice here. So watch this spot!
Attend a KBHN Conference
Kids Brain Health Network has a strong track record in producing fascinating and engaging interdisciplinary annual conferences that examine the lived experience of neurodisability as well as cutting edge research.
In 2018-2019 we are moving in a new direction. Our plan is to host four smaller events in locations across the country, each one focusing on one of our priorities in early diagnosis, effective treatment and support for families.
Participate in Priorities Surveys
Take part in our stakeholder engagement activities, and help Kids Brain Health Network ensure our research, training and outreach are responsive and relevant. In 2016, an environmental scan of stakeholders identified 44 stakeholder priorities. In 2017, KBHN invited Canadians with an interest in neurodisabilities to help rank these priorities at an event in Vancouver. Knowing the priorities of our community, and understanding which priorities are most important, is a key step in determining our goals and the order of our activities. KBHN will continue to reach out to our community to learn more about what’s important to them.
