Understanding the Health & Wellness Needs of Special Olympics Athletes - In Partnership with the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

posted Dec 1, 2016, 6:23 AM by Jeff Gall

We invite you to participate in a study conducted by a team of researchers from Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Bloorview Research Institute, and the University of Toronto. We are hoping to gain a greater understanding of the health and wellness successes and goals of Special Olympics Canada’s athletes, through the perspectives of parents/guardians and coaches. The findings of this research project may be used to help improve the quality of tools and services being provided to athletes involved in Special Olympics Canada.

To participate, you must be a:
• Parent/guardian or caregiver of a Special Olympics Canada athlete (current or former) OR
• Coach for a Special Olympics Canada Chapter (current or former)

The anonymous survey should take between 10-15 minutes to complete.
