Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Intensive power mobility training is feasible for children with cerebral palsy ages birth to three years and can yield greater acquisition of power mobility operatory skills due to more frequent sessions, yet scheduling for these sessions can prove difficult with parents. This research study will advance professional practice because the results will add to the current literature to aid in creating a standardized intensive power mobility training protocol, as there is not currently one for this age group.
