Welcome to Our Network!

In Canada, as many as 850,000 children under the age of 14 are living with a brain-based developmental disability and face life-long challenges with mobility, language, learning, socialization, and/or self-care that impact the quality of their lives

At CHILD-BRIGHT, patients, families, researchers, clinicians, policy makers and other key stakeholders work together to improve healthcare systems, practices, and knowledge to ensure better outcomes for these children and their families.

How we got started

“In 2015, we met with 80 stakeholders in person and polled over 900 patients and families touched by brain-based disabilities. We wanted to hear their priorities, concerns, and learn more about what was important to them. Based on their input, CHILD-BRIGHT, with its 3 themes and 12 research projects, was born.”
— Dr. Annette Majnemer, CHILD-BRIGHT Network Director
