Wenonah's current research focuses on evaluating and implementing school-based models of collaborative service delivery as well as on enhancing the capacity of health professionals to engage in collaborative practice. She has a particular interest in exploring how Universal Design for Learning, which is a framework in education for making classrooms accessible and inclusive, could be leveraged by health professionals to support the participation of children with chronic health conditions and disabilities at school.
