    Title: Using Lego Robots to Estimate Cognitive Ability in Children who have Severe Disabilities
    Creator: Cook, A.M.
    Description: Children with severe disabilities can control a Lego robot to perform un-structured play tasks. Success with the robot could be a proxy measure for children who have cognitive abilities but cannot demonstrate them in standard testing. Project results are presented and their utility as a proxy measure is explored.
