Intentions : «This paper aimed to present the participatory consensus-seeking process conducted to codevelop Roots to Bloom, a tool to help parents stimulate their children’s development at home. The objectives were to identify (1) the prioritized needs for parental information (tool content) and (2) the most appropriate format to reach families with low income (tool format).» (p. 322-323)
Échantillon/Matériau : «Eleven participants, including parents (n = 3), community workers (n = 2), healthcare professionals (n = 4), a pediatric primary care manager (n = 1) and a public health scientific advisor specializing in pediatrics (n = 1), took part in the two TRIAGE [Technique of Research of Information by Animation of a Group of Experts] phases. All parents were the mothers of two to three boys or girls aged between 5 months and 8 years. Different family structures were represented (i.e., traditional nuclear families and blended families), as there was one stepmother.» (p. 325)

«[T]his research led to the production of Roots to Bloom, which is an attractive tool (a life-size growth chart with an informative booklet) to support parents, in particular those with low income, in promoting the development of their young children. Roots to Bloom provides information to help parents stimulate their children’s autonomy in their daily routines and facilitates parents’ navigation through the healthcare system when concerns arise. Roots to Bloom contributes to meeting the critical need, highlighted in the literature and in a large number of government agency reports, to make support resources for early child develop- ment accessible to families with low income (Canadian Institute for Health Information, 2014; United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, 2006). This tool, which can be used by parents at home and in community and primary care settings, represents a concrete solution to help prevent developmental delays, a major health issue for young children (Canadian Institute for Health Information, 2014; Demirci & Kartal, 2016).» (p. 330)
