Hypoxemia and White Matter Development in the Motor Outcomes of Extremely Preterm Infants (2017)

Researchers are non-invasively studying the brains of premature infants using advanced MRI techniques to determine the relationship between oxygen levels provided in the hospital and the impact on outcome

Neuroplastic Adaptations of Swallowing and Speech in Cerebral Palsy: a 2-Center Study to Identify New Treatment Targets (2017)

Researchers are examining the relationship between swallowing and speech mechanisms at several physiological levels. A better knowledge of typical and atypical development of swallow and speech could lead to

Contralaterally Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation and Hand Therapy Video Games for Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy (2016)

Individuals with CP often need to strengthen their muscles to participate in daily life. Few therapies help individuals strengthen their muscles on only one side. This grant seeks to

Patient Reported Outcomes in Cerebral Palsy (2016)

Appropriate treatment of CP requires that all symptoms of CP be addressed. This grant seeks to determine the nature of bladder-related symptoms individuals with CP face, in the hopes

Accessible Methodology to Quantitate General Movements Assessments in Infants at High Risk for Cerebral Palsy (2016)

The best diagnostic tool for CP in infants is difficult to use. Better diagnostic tools can diagnose earlier and easier, to intervene more effectively. This grant tests the ability

The Effect of Intravenous ɛ- Aminocarproic Acid on Blood Loss and Transfusion Requirements after Bilateral Varus Rotational Osteotomy (VRO): A Prospective Double-blinded, Randomized Control Trial (2015)

VRO surgery (i.e., varus rotational osteotomy) is conducted on many cerebral palsy patients to maintain a level pelvis, a balanced spine, and mobile pain free hips. The purpose of

Linking Neuroplasticity With the Outcomes of Walking-Based Interventions: a Feasibility Trial Comparing a Motor Learning Versus a Strength-Based Program in Children with Cerebral Palsy (2015)

Researchers compared the effectiveness of two different approaches in helping a child with CP improve their gait:  the strength-based approach verses the motor-based, or learning-based approach.  This information is important because

CP2: Community Partners for Children’s Participation – Pilot Project and Feasibility Study (2015)

The objective of this multi-site research was to identify the relationship between social deprivation, resources offered, and participation levels of children with CP. Then, based on these factors, interventions

Development of ICF-based Multimedia Education Modules and their Impact on Mother’s Knowledge and Attitude towards their Children with Cerebral Palsy (2015)

The World Health Organization has created a universal framework for health (i.e., the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health or ICF). Using the ICF framework, this project focused
