Leah Dix 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). Leah is a registered occupational therapist and will be working with the OTs, and the health service system during the implementation of P4C. She has a background in project management with studies focused on supports for internationally educated occupational therapists.
