Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Precrawling infants used a robotic mobility device during 12 play sessions. Significant gains were noted on measures of driving performance and in parent perceptions of motivation to move. These measures were moderately correlated, supporting the relationship between movement and motivation in precrawling infants.
