BACKGROUND Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is a potentially effective intervention for children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP). PURPOSE The objectives of this systematic review are: (1) to investigate whether CIMT is supported with valid research of its effectiveness and (2) to identify key characteristics of the child and intervention(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Children with significantly decreased mobility have limited opportunities to explore their physical and social environment. A variety of assistive technologies are available to increase mobility; however, no single device provides the level of functional mobility that children developing typically enjoy. The purpose of this technical(More)
We investigated the association of infants' sleep and awake positioning with motor milestone acquisition as measured by the Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS). Participants were 30 very-low-birthweight (VLBW) infants with preterm white matter disease (PTWMD; 21 males, nine females; mean birthweight [BW] 1,129 g [SD 338]; mean gestational age [GA] 28 wks [SD(More)
PURPOSE Children with cerebral palsy have limited opportunities to explore their physical and social environment. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using a "ride-on toy car" as a readily available, low-cost, fun, and functional option for children with special needs. METHODS Brenden, a 21-month-old child, was provided a(More)
PURPOSE This study examined body-scaled information that specifies the reach patterns of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy and children with typical development. METHODS Nine children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (3-5 years) and 9 age-matched children with typical development participated in the study. They were required to reach and grasp 10(More)
PURPOSE Before the onset of walking, children with Down syndrome experience limited mobility yet are never considered candidates for traditional powered mobility devices. The purpose of this single-case study is to quantify the feasibility and family perceptions of including modified ride-on car use as an option for increasing daily mobility, socialization,(More)
AIM To examine the effects of ride-on car (ROC) training versus conventional therapy on mobility and social function in young children with disabilities in a hospital-based environment. METHODS AND PROCEDURES Twenty young children with disabilities, aged 1-3 years, were recruited. The treatment group (n=10) received ROC training of 2h/session, 2(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this report was to determine the feasibility of short-term modified ride-on car (ROC) use for exploration and enjoyment by children with complex medical needs. METHODS A single-subject research design was used (n = 3; age, 6 months to 5 years). Children were video-recorded using their modified ROC. RESULTS All children(More)
