Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Power Fun, a therapeutic powered mobility (PM) summer camp, provides a pragmatic solution to promote independent mobility for children with severe cerebral palsy. This poster presents the protocol of Power Fun and the results of a repeated-measure mixed-method validation study (N = 24). Results showed significant improvement in PM skills, attainment of most functional goals, and social changes after participation, making it an evidence-based intervention for children with multiple, severe disabilities.
