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 [email protected] and 404-413-1256 for further information.
