Participants Needed – Virtual Reality Training in Children with Cerebral Palsy: We are looking for children with Cerebral Palsy aged between 6 to 12 years old to participate in a current research project. We want to examine the effect of an 8-week home-based virtual reality computer gaming intervention on the improvement of upper-extremity function in children with Cerebral Palsy. Each child will play games for a total of 150 minutes per week at home. Parents and their children usually find these experiences of participation to be interesting and fun. If interested, please contact Dr. Yu-ping Chen at ypchen@gsu.edu and 404-413-1256 for further information.

Participants Needed – Phonological Awareness in Preschool Age Children with Developmental Disabilities: Children between the ages of 4 and 5 with developmental disabilities are currently invited to participate in a research project to study speech, language and reading development. Children may or may not use speech to communicate and must have English as a primary language. Please view this flyer for more information, and call 404-413-5696 if you are interested in hearing more about how you and your child can participate.
