ReadyStepGrow Research


Across the world there are very few intervention programs for premmies and their families that have been developed or tested. ReadyStepGrow collects data from parents regarding changes in their well-being as well as changes in their child's development over the course of each program.  All information is de-identified and strictly confidential, in line with research ethics.  We are collecting this data to assess the effectiveness of our programs. Anecdotally, parents and the ReadyStepGrow team have observed substantial improvements in various skills for premmies in our programs.

In the future ReadyStepGrow aims to attract research funding and university involvement.  The basis of our approach is that parents can provide challenges in their premmie's environment that will improve brain connectivity - commonly known as 'brain plasticity'.  Whilst the notion of brain plasticity is widley accepted and worked with, there is very little 'hard evidence' in human populations.  The only studies we know of that demonstrated positive human brain changes, measured by MRI, were with premmies.
