Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I help CanChild continue to support children and youth with disabilities and their families?

- What do I do if I am interested in translating an existing CanChild measure or document?
Please be sure to contact us by e-mail to ask for permission to do the translation, before you begin the process. Some of the copyright ownerships for our measures belong to the publisher, not CanChild, so be sure to check with us first to find out who you need to speak to about permission for translating.
- Can I contact CanChild to get more information about a study, article, etc.?
Please contact us by e-mail. Depending on the volume of requests, the complexity of the request, or the availability of an appropriate CanChild member to respond to your request, it may take several days. Please be patient and feel free to follow-up with us if you are concerned that you have not heard back.
- What training courses/workshops can I attend?
In general, CanChild does not provide training or workshops.
- Can I bring my child in to be diagnosed, to receive treatment or for a referral?
CanChild is an academic research unit. What does this mean? We don't have clinics, see children or provide treatment or therapy. We also can't provide a diagnosis or a referral for services. We do provide a wealth of information on our website from the studies/research we have completed.
