PS10.3: Parents' Perspectives of Infants Using Modified Toy Cars

A mixed methods design was used with five parents of five immobile children aged between 13 and 37 months. Parents used a modified electronic ride on car (ROTC)with their child and kept a log of their feelings over an 8-week period. A questionnaire (PIADS) was completed pre and post intervention while interviews were completed after intervention. Outcomes identify the impact of using a modified ROTC with infants with mobility impairments as reported by their parents
