The purpose of this study was to determine the impact on performance of repeated trials of the Tracker system in a series of target acquisition tasks for persons with cerebral palsy (CP). Twelve persons with CP participated in the single case experimental study. Data were collected on their time...
Using Lego Robots to Estimate Cognitive Ability in Children who have Severe Disabilities
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...
Children with disabilities may have decreased ability to play, and thus less opportunity to acquire associated motor, cognitive, and linguistic skills. There is evidence that robotic play may help children acquire those skills, and our overall goal is to facilitate integration of spontaneous...
Children have utilized switch adapted infrared controllers to manipulate play objects with inexpensive Lego™ robots in order to learn new and demonstrate existing skills. Since some speech generating devices (SGDs) have infrared output, the opportunity arises for children to have an integrated...
