Jooay App: Promoting Participation of Children with Disabilities

Jooay App: Promoting Participation of Children with Disabilities

Seminar hosted by ComSanté, Centre de recherche sur la communication et la santé

Participation in sports and leisure activities is an important component of child development, but engagement of children with disabilities remains limited compared to children of the same age. Families and health professionals indicated that access to information on available resources is an essential factor facilitating participation. Families further expressed that a strong social support system improves children's participation in leisure. It is in this context that two researchers from McGill University created Jooay, a free mobile and web-based application offering a repository of adapted or inclusive leisure activities for children with disabilities available across Canada. Jooay is also an online support community allowing the exchange of advice and experiences. The research activities of this project are aimed at (1) mapping the patterns of Behavior Change among Jooay users; (2) identifying the best strategies for disseminating information about adapted leisure and (3) implementing and evaluating methods to optimize the use of this technology. The information gathered through the mobile application will also be used to inform policy and community change. 

 

Date : February 22nd 2018, from 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM
Speakers : Annette Majnemer, professor, McGill University; Keiko Shikako-Thomas, assistant professor, McGill University.
Building : UQAM's Pavillon Saint-Denis (AB), Montreal
Room: AB-7015

BRAINstorm: CHILD-BRIGHT KT's Innovation Incubator Event and Grant Competition 2017

Through this highly interactive workshop, participants will begin by defining a shared understanding of integrated knowledge translation. Participants will then discover what it means to “innovate”, and how innovations can be applied to knowledge translation science. Through creative brainstorming techniques and by building partnerships with other participants, attendees will have the opportunity to generate and expand on innovative knowledge translation projects ideas. As an example, an open-mic style period will allow participants to share their project ideas – no matter how daring, outrageous, creative or out-of-the-box they might be. The session will conclude with concrete actions to further conceptualize the ideas discussed, and will encourage partners to participate in the Innovation Incubator funding competition to help bring a unique, innovative integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) project to life.
