UR-HRPP Educational Forum: Understanding the Assent Process
Assenting children for research is a complex process which involves ensuring an understanding of what they are agreeing to while limiting coercion from adults. Since children are considered a vulnerable population, protections must be put in place to present research in language they understand, while also determining their capacity to comprehend it. Parental and guardian permission to allow children to participate in research is determined by the level of research being studied and further protects the rights of children in research.

Session Objectives:
1. Develop assent documents utilizing the necessary components of the consenting process utilizing language children can understand
2. Understand the rights of children as research participants
3. Determine capacity for understanding research in children
