Happy Mother's Day! At Kessler Foundation, we recognize how important moms can be for people with disabilities—and how important our donors are for advancing life-changing rehabilitation research. Today, I share a story to demonstrate how a mother’s love, optimism, and support make all the
This study investigates whether gait training using computer feedback can improve the walking pattern of children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy. (Share a PDF brochure about this study.)
We are looking to learn whether a computerized program called the Attention Process Training-3 (Apt-3) can improve the attention of school-aged children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or children who have had a history of concussion.
Examination of Emotional Processing in Children with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
This study investigates how children diagnosed with ASD or following a TBI are able to recognize emotions expressed by others.
This study seeks to understand how children with ADHD control their actions. Using computer-based games, researchers will investigate the pattern of action in children with ADHD on and off medication.
This study investigates whether a memory training program called the Modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) can improve learning of school-aged children with memory impairment following a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
|The proposed pilot study seeks to understand the sleep patterns of a pediatric inpatient rehabilitation population, and how sleep patterns may affect the patient’s alertness, engagement in therapies, and cooperation.|
Standard vs Ultralight Wheelchairs: Differences in Propulsion in Biomechanics in Pediatric Manual Wheelchair Users
|This study is an experimental trial to evaluate and quantify differences in propulsion mechanics associated with the use of standard (SWC) versus ultralight (UWC) wheelchairs in pediatric manual wheelchair users.|
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the relationship between brain function and how symptoms are expressed in young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The study seeks to evaluate how symptoms of ASD vary in young children (below the age of 8 years).
