This workshop will introduce power mobility use with infants, toddlers and preschool children and highlight the benefits and challenges of using power mobility at an early age. The presenters have been involved in publishing three recent articles on use of power mobility with children including an opinion paper, a systematic review of outcomes and a clinical practice considerations paper. Information from these publications will be shared and the evidence supporting the early introduction of power mobility and its impact on children’s development and participation will be highlighted. This will be followed by clinical examples demonstrating the use of different kinds of power mobility devices within different clinical practice settings and different countries around the world. The presenters will highlight their own experiences as well as the experiences of others and will share relevant and practical resources to assist clinicians in educating families and other therapists in the benefits of introducing power mobility with young children.
