(TORONTO, ON): A generous $20,000 donation from Green Shield Canada's Community Giving Program has been instrumental in launching the new Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario (SB&H) Getting You There program to help vulnerable teens and young adults with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus (sb/h) successfully transition to adulthood.
Getting funding assistance for incontinence supplies in Ontario is not cut and dry; neither is keeping it.
The purpose of the study is to obtain information from individuals with spina bifida on the impact of symptoms of this condition on everyday life.
Disability impacts the lives of many Ontarians, and the number of people with disabilities is increasing.
Thank you to the James Rutley Grand Memorial Fund at the Toronto Community Foundation for their donation of $7,500 to SB&H!
The Family Resource Centre at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital provides information and support to parents of children with disabilities.
For the first time in a provincial election in Ontario, voters can apply in advance for a mail-in ballot and vote anytime over the election period.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada (RMHC) has donated $11,400 to SB&H to provide free books to young people with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus through the SB&H Kidz and Youth Book Club.
Folic-acid levels in store-bought spinach as much as double after nine days under fluorescent lighting, according to new research highlighted in the January 2011 issue of Reader’s Digest.
What will the researchers be doing?
As a participant in this study, they will show your child pictures of children doing different activities and ask your child if they participate in the activities in the pictures. The researchers will then ask your child why they participate in the activities they do, and why they do not participate in other activities.
