McMaster Legacy Grant from the Canadian Occupational Therapy Foundation
Professor Marie Brossard-Racine OT Ph.D. and Eliane Dionne OT (Ph.D. candidate) have been selected as the winners of the McMaster Legacy Grant 2021 competition. The award will support a research study that will survey the current practices of Canadian Occupational Therapists (OT) towards academic activities in children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). This study will collect data on the assessment and intervention practices, and likely identifying knowledge gaps. We anticipate that this study will have strong significance for the community of OT working with school-aged children and that it will spark rich conversations about the role of OTs with children with DCD.
