          Abstract

          Young people who have complex physical disabilities and good cognition may face many barriers to learning, communication, personal development, physical interaction and play experiences. Physical interaction and play are known to be important components of child development, but this group currently has few suitable ways in which to participate in these activities.

          Technology can help to facilitate such experiences. This research aims to develop a technology-based tool to provide this group with the potential for physical interaction and physical play, by providing a means of manipulating objects. The tool will be used to develop the target group’s knowledge of spatial concepts and the properties of objects. It will utilise eye gaze technology, robotics and haptic feedback (artificial sensation) in order to simulate physical control and sensations.

          Throughout this study, there will be a strong focus on Human Computer Interaction, as the target group has complex usability requirements.

              Intensive pediatric constraint-induced therapy for children with cerebral palsy: randomized, controlled, crossover trial.

              A randomized crossover trial of a new form of pediatric rehabilitation was conducted with 18 children with hemiparesis. Half were randomly assigned to receive pediatric constraint-induced therapy involving constraint of the functional upper extremity and intensive therapy with the hemiparetic upper extremity. Controls received conventional physical and occupational therapy and then were crossed over to receive pediatric constraint-induced therapy. Pediatric constraint-induced therapy produced significantly greater gains than conventional rehabilitation services.
