GoBabyGo! Rodeo

  • UTHSC Student-Alumni Center Memphis, TN 38103 United States (map)

On September 14 from 10 a.m. to noon., UTHSC’s Departments of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy will partner with the Department of Engineering at Christian Brothers University to present the student-led program GoBabyGo! in Memphis. It was started at the University of Delaware to provide mobility to children with disabilities through adapted toy cars. The purpose of the project is to modify off-the-shelf ride on toys and individualize them to the child’s needs. This allows children with special needs to have an opportunity to explore their environment more independently and safely all while having fun! Modifications to the cars may include anything from moving the foot pedal to a steering wheel switch, raising the seat height, adding stability through different harnesses or anything that would allow the child to move.
