Research
Research Interests
My dissertation work was with sit-to-stand and sit-to-walk transitions in typically developing children and children with CP. Currently, my primary research is in 2 categories 1) using gaming systems with pediatric/neurological populations and 2) promoting physical activity and exercise in pediatric populations
Current Projects: Working with a clinical facility to develop a quality of life measurement for pediatric clients receiving treatment for idiopathic scoliosis
