The BRIGHT Coaching Research Study is looking for participants!

Children develop critical skills during the preschool years. Children with developmental differences or delays may struggle with learning these skills, or learn them in different ways and at different speeds. Getting assessments or services for your child may take time. This can be difficult and stressful for families.   BRIGHT Coaching is a research study about how to support families while they are waiting for services. The study is testing to see if a coach program (telephone coaching sessions, online education and peer support) improves parent/caregiver health and family health care experience.   For more information, read our brochure or contact our Research Assistant, Shayna Pierce at spierce@rccinc.ca.
