The CPERL team, in partnership with colleagues at Tufts, McMaster, and McGill universities, were awarded a grant from the American Occupational Therapy Foundation (AOTF). Their project will examine how feasible and effective PEM-Plus (PEM+) is when used by caregivers of children with developmental disabilities and delays. PEM+ is a web-based application that is designed with and for caregivers to help with planning their child’s care. PEM+ can be completed in the comfort and privacy of caregivers’ homes with the option to receive professional coaching support.
