Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN) is a national network (of 21 leading academic and research institutions) that puts science to work for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. It supports cutting-edge research and use evidence-based solutions. Most importantly, it puts kids and families at the heart of what it does. With funding from the federal Network Centres of Excellence (NCE) program and other partners, KBHN has invested over $60 million into 150 projects and research initiatives so kids can live their best lives.
Improving outcomes for children and families
More than 400,000 kids under the age of 14 in Canada live with a neurodevelopmental disability. While there continues to be great advancement in the science of children’s brain health, these discoveries often don’t make it to the children and families who need it. Kids Brain Health Network exists to change this.
KBHN bridges the gap between science and families, connecting Canada’s leading researchers with children who can benefit most from their work to help kids live their best lives. Its research makes earlier diagnosis possible. It evaluates new and effective treatments, find out what works, and explore better ways to support children and their families.
