The Grandview Kids Research Committee has been involved in nearly 20 projects this year.
The studies cover a wide range of topics including testing video games for kids with CP aka Botley’s Bootle Blast!, the impact of sleep and music on developmental conditions; and an exciting project with the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) to understand how a designed space can impact a families experience.
We were proud to again to participate in the Ontario Autism Hub and are part of the Eastern group run through the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) This past year we have recruited Dr. Sonali Mohile and Dr. Chris Montgomery to provide additional assessment in addition to those provided by our existing group.
We are becoming sought after as a research partner and recruitment centre because of our strong connection with our families.
The Highlight of the Year
The highlight of the year was being selected as the host for the CPNET Science and Family Day which we elected to host at the Abilities Centre, to show off Whitby’s world class facility to families and scientists from across the province.
The day was a resounding success and had special presentations from some of Grandview’s graduates along with many renowned scientists in the field of Cerebral Palsy. This has further solidified Grandview’s position as the leader in paediatric research in Durham Region.

Sending our thanks to all the caring individuals, businesses and organizations whose contributions changed lives and made so much possible in 2019/2020. You helped Grandview kids move, play, learn, communicate and connect in ways their families never dreamed possible.
