F-words video competition

Just a quick post today to ask for your support.

A while back, I wrote about how I was asked to be part of a research team through CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research (see this post HERE)

The research is based on Dr. Peter Rosenbaum's "F-words in Childhood Disability", the 'F-words' being function, family, fitness, fun, friends and future. Our goal will be to address the knowledge needs of families with children with disabilities and to support the uptake of the 'F-words' concepts in children's health care.

You will see me writing more about this study, and my role on the research team in the coming months. Right now, we need your help.

A video was created to bring awareness to the 'F-words'. That video has been entered into the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) Talks Video Competition, and is now in the running to access funding for our research. We just need to get a few more 'likes' by the end of today!!

If you could, please go to the video here -
watch the video, and LIKE it. (You need a Gmail or YouTube account to vote).

Voting ends tonight - January 8th, 2015 at 8pm EST.

On behalf of the 'F-words' in Childhood Disability Research Team, we greatly appreciate your time and support! Thank you!!

  1. It says private video, is there something I need to sign up for in order to access it? I'm a consultant in special education and have seen Dr Rosenbaum speak on this subject.
