Research Study: Helping Parents Get Their Kids with Disabilities Involved in Sport

Are you a parent of a child with a disability?

You are invited to participate in a research study about
helping parents get their kids with disabilities involved in sport!

The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability is partnering with York University on a project titled “Increasing Sport Participation in Children and Youth with Disabilities; Messaging and Marketing to Parents”. Funded by the Sport Canada Innovation Program, the project aims to improve physical activity and sport information for parents of children with disabilities that will result in improved and increased involvement and participation.

Dr. Rebecca Basset-Gunter and the research team are seeking parents who have children with disabilities between the ages of 5-24 to participate in this study by reviewing physical activity and sport information and participating in a one-hour online focus group to provide feedback.

The information letter, focus group schedule and qualifying questionnaire can be found here. Once parents have completed the information, an information package and secure link to participate in the focus group of choice will be provided.

As a thank you, parent participants will receive a $10 e-gift card.

If you know of any parents that would be interested in participating, please pass this on!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Lauren Tristani at
