Biography

Linda Nguyen graduated from the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) Program, Child Health Specialization, at McMaster University in 2015. Her research interest in goal-setting for children and adolescents with disabilities in family-centred services led her to pursue graduate studies. In 2017, she completed her Masters in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University, and her Masters thesis was focused on understanding parents’ perspectives and experience with botulinum toxin treatment for non-ambulatory children and adolescents with cerebral palsy. She is currently a PhD student working under the supervision of Dr. Jan Willem Gorter. Her PhD studies are focused on the role of siblings of a brother or sister with a disability during transition from pediatric to adult healthcare.
