For infants with mild motor impairments, parent-provided cognitive opportunities during play continue to increase after mobility is achieved, in contrast to those with severe motor impairment, where cognitive opportunities decrease, as gross motor abilities remain stable. This analysis of two infants demonstrates this difference and will be confirmed in the analysis of 90 children with mild, moderate, and severe impairment. These findings have implications for early-intervention service providers.
