Geaux, Baby, Geaux! Workshop at LSUHealth New Orleans

On April 21, 2017, from 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the Human Development Center (411 South Prieur Street), the School of Allied Health Professions will host the Geaux, Baby, Geaux! Workshop.

The workshop, sponsored by Numotion, will provide training for allied health professionals and early childhood educators who work with low-mobility children. Teams of participants will discuss their own ideas about powered mobility and prepare a ride-on car for a child with mobility needs. Ten of these modified ride-on cars will be given to children with disabilities.

The Go, Baby, Go! Program was developed by Drs. Cole Galloway and Sam Logan at the University of Delaware. Go, Baby, Go! is a research-based community program intended to provide motorized cars for children with limited mobility.

A presentation on advances helping to close the gaps in providing power mobility to young children will be given by Go, Baby, Go! developer Sam Logan, PhD, of Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences.

“Mobility is a basic human right, and occupational therapists recognize the importance of it because mobility contributes to social, cognitive, and communication development of children,” notes Kerrie Ramsdell, MS, LOTR, LSU Health New Orleans Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy. “Children who have limited mobility are at increased risk for more delays in these three areas. By offering power mobility, we have the ability to aid the overall development of children with motor impairments.”
