Cindy DeCola is one of two Project Coordinators for the Partnering for Change (P4C) implementation and evaluation study funded by the Ontario Ministries of Health and Long Term Care and Education. The study aims to evaluate a new school health service delivery model, P4C, that enables occupational therapists (OTs) to work collaboratively with educators and families, to provide support to whole schools and help creating classroom environments that encourage successful participation and academic achievement of children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Cindy has a background in Health Studies and Health Promotion and was previously the Project Coordinator on the P4C Demonstration Project. She will be working with over 400 children and families who are participating in this project.
