TRAIL Lab Mission

The mission of TRAIL (TRansitions And Inclusive environments Lab) is to conceptualize and develop programs and interventions to enhance the inclusion of children and youth with disabilities in school, at work and in the community. Our focus is on transitions between environments and transitions to adulthood.

Drawing on mixed-methods, our team works to understand barriers to inclusion and to develop effective interventions and programs. The TRAIL is interdisciplinary and draws on a youth/family engagement approach. The core values of our research are clinical, health and social impact, evaluation, and knowledge translation. The TRAIL is led by Dr. Sally Lindsay, who holds a career award from the Ontario Ministry of Research and innovation. TRAIL is part of the Bloorview Research Institute at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.
