Danielle DuPlessis

Danielle is pursuing her M.A. in Clinical Developmental Psychology with a specialization in Clinical Neuropsychology. Her work focuses on helping educators accommodate children with acquired brain injuries in the classroom, and is carried out in collaboration with scientists at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. She is also currently a research coordinator for the NOvEL and PEARL labs at Holland Bloorview, where she facilitates a variety of research projects focused on neurorehabilitation following pediatric brain injury. Outside of school, Danielle is a wheelchair basketball player and Paralympian who competed with team Canada for four years. Her previous Master’s thesis in Cognitive Rehabilitation at the University of Toronto merged her interests in sport and neuroscience, as she developed a novel return-to-play assessment for youth athletes following concussion. In her spare time, Danielle loves riding her bike, camping, and making trips to her home province of New Brunswick.
