Intersectoral Collaboration on Early Childhood Development (ECD) – Developmental Surveillance in Communities 

 

In this session, Dr. John Cairney will discuss the background, context, and process for the creation of an innovative new early childhood developmental surveillance tool for Ontarians.  The presentation will explore how the need for such a tool was established, as well as the process involved in working collaboratively across sectors to realize this initiative.  Additionally, this session will examine the potential impact of the tool on early childhood development and public health practices. This work is part of the provincial Special Needs Strategy goal for greater support for developmental awareness and earlier identification of developmental delays in children and youth in Ontario.

Presenter: Dr. John Cairney

Dr. John Cairney is a Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto, as well as in the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University.  From 2005-2008, he held a Canada Research Chair in Psychiatric Epidemiology from the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.  Since 2013, John Cairney has been the Director of the Infant and Child Health Research (INCH) Lab. He has published over 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and written/edited four books.
