The Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre staff is often involved in multicentre trials relating to children with physical and developmental disabilities. The largest project currently underway focuses on the study of hemiplegic cerebral palsy.

Division members are involved in the following areas of study:
  • Neurology of autism spectrum disorders
  • Feeding difficulties in the Down syndrome population
  • Use of genetic microarray testing by developmental pediatricians
  • Medical ethics

Medical students and residents are welcome to become involved in projects already underway at the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre or to propose new research projects that could be undertaken at the centre.
