How should we explain a research study so more kids understand what’s involved?
Researchers invite children to take part in research. However, children may not know what a study involves or have a tough time making a decision about taking part. We want to learn how well researchers explain research studies to children who are invited to take part.
Participate in this study
Are you a parent of a child between the ages of 7-14? Are you between the ages of 7 and 14 years? Consider participating in our study!
Who can participate
We are looking for...
- Parents and their children who are typically developing, ages 7-14.
- Parents and their children with cerebral palsy, ages 7-14.
- Children must be able to answer ‘yes’/’not sure’/’no’ questions and speak with a researcher unaided.
- Both parents and children must be able to converse in English.
The parent and child will meet with a researcher for a 1-hour research session at Holland Bloorview. A second 10-minute session may be offered to discuss what we learned.
- Children and parents will discuss how well a researcher explained the study.
- Children will also complete a brief assessment of their thinking abilities.
- Families will receive a $40 gift card to share. Travel expenses/parking will be covered up to $10.
