Research... Today's Practice and Tomorrow's Hope.
The Children's Rehabilitation Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children with disabilities and their families through research. A Research Coordinator position at the RCC is funded by donations to the Foundation. The research is focused on enhancing care and evaluating all the barriers restricting inclusion of children with disabilities.
The Research Coordinator collaborates with RCC staff and local and national researchers in the field of childhood disability to develop research opportunities and conduct research. Studies looking at issues such as community participation, system barriers, early challenges with feeding and intervention approaches for children with cerebral palsy, developmental delay, and autism are currently underway or in process.
