In collaboration with Children’s Specialized Hospital, researchers at Kessler Foundation are examining ways of improving the lives of children affected by brain injury, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit Disorder
Studying Multi-Joint Adaptation to Biofeedback in Children with Cerebral Palsy
The purpose of this study is to observe a group of children with cerebral palsy (CP) using a computer display to help change their walking pattern while walking on a treadmill.
Emotional Processing Intervention for Children with TBI
Researchers are examining the effectiveness of an emotional processing program that is modified for use with children. Participants complete paper and pencil tests and computerized tasks.
This study can be completed remotely and does not require in-person visits.
