Nothing for us without us

CHILD-BRIGHT is focused on supporting the rights of some of Canada’s most vulnerable citizens – children with brain-based developmental disabilities. For research to make a difference, the findings need to be delivered to people who can use them, and in a format that makes them easy to understand and apply. One example is Jooay, a free mobile and web app that helps children with disabilities and their families locate leisure opportunities close to where they are. The app contains a database of arts, sports, camps, and other leisure programs across the country. Dr. Keiko Shikako-Thomas and Dr. Majnemer created Jooay in collaboration with parents, rehabilitation professionals, policy makers, physical education teachers, and community partners.
