Project end date: Ongoing project

Contact project organizer

Researchers at the University of Alberta are attempting to improve the life outcomes of families affected by Neurodevelopmental Disorders by developing a chatbot. The verification of engagement strategies used in the Chatbot is critical to improve families’ experiences with the application. The research team is currently in the process of running Focus Groups that are one-time 45~60-minute online sessions with 1-4 other individuals. Parents who have a child with Neurodevelopmental Disorders are invited for these focus groups. They will answer questions about their preferences for specific engagement strategies and converse with other participants in a Zoom meeting format.
