Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

Identifying subtle motor delays in early childhood is challenging. Accelerometry is a novel way to characterize upper-extremity motor patterns in typically developing children. Differences were identified between typically developing children and children with hemiparesis ages 0–5 yr.
