Abstract
  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility for an infant with Down syndrome to use a modified ride-on car that encourages the physical skills of pulling from sit-to-stand and standing with assistance. Method: An 8 month old boy, Child B, was video recorded during the 11 month study, using his modified sit-to-stand ride-on car. Results: For a majority of the study, Child B demonstrated increased movement, including transitions to standing, increased socialization, and general enjoyment when using the modified ride-on car. Conclusions: The sit-to-stand modified ride-on car is a feasible assistive technology for children with Down syndrome under the age of 1, as it helps keep the child in an upright position and the child enjoys using the car in their daily lives. Key words: mobility, Down syndrome, male, infant, single-subject research design, socialization, ride-on car.
