Please click here to confidentially share your contact info so that we can get in touch with you about potential study participation!

study opportunities for northeastern students ages 18-28, children with cerebral palsy and typically-developing children ages 8-16

We are currently recruiting for 2 research studies!  Both studies explore how new movement skills are learned in virtual environments, with the goal of understanding how to enhance skill transfer to real life skills. 

Participants come to the lab for two 1-1.5 hour sessions, 1-7 days apart. Northeastern students will receive a $20 gift card for their participation. Families will receive a $40 gift card for each child who takes part in a study, and children and youth are entered into a draw to win an iPad Mini!

We have availability during the day, evenings and weekends! Parking or MBTA travel is reimbursed. 

The goal of our research program is to develop more effective physical therapy interventions for children with cerebral palsy and other movement impairments. The studies are funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (National Institutes of Health) and the Charles H. Hood Foundation Child Health Research Award Program.
