The Rehabilitation Games and Virtual Reality (ReGame-VR) lab at Northeastern University is looking for 8-16 year old children with cerebral palsy to take part in a virtual reality study! The study explores how children learn a new balance task in virtual and real life environments. Children come to the lab for two sessions, 1-7 days apart. They practice a balance reaching task in either a virtual environment that is like a video game, a virtual environment that uses a 3D headset, or a physical environment.
We will measure your child’s performance on the task using a force plate. The study will help us to understand how to best use virtual environments for learning in rehabilitation for children with balance difficulties.
Your child will receive a $40 gift card for taking part in the study and your parking or local MBTA travel will be reimbursed. Please visit https://neu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eV59IPB7E7aOH5z, call the ReGame-VR lab at 617-373-6107 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
We have rescheduled the MA YES! Workshop on Brain Awareness to Sunday, April 7th from 1:30-4pm. It will be at the same location, Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School in Waltham. Thanks to the generosity of the organization we are partnering with there will be no cost for the April 7th event.
Why should you go?
So many families care for their loved ones with disabilities at home and they rely on a variety of support services to do so. That’s why the Arc of Massachusetts is making supporting families and workforce issues (such as recruiting, training, and retaining) its legislative priorities in 2019. Join us at the State House to:
Talk about YOUR family.
