This study investigated the feasibility of virtual reality (VR) as a therapeutic intervention for two pediatric populations: cerebral palsy and autism. OTs, children with autism, and their caregivers trialed VR and subsequently participated in either a focus group or a semistructured interview. Data analysis revealed several themes regarding the use of VR with these populations. Positive results indicate the need for future development of pediatric-specific VR programs.
