Currently, there is limited information to support decision-making for the provision of powered mobility for very young children with disabilities. To better understand the appropriate age and development for prescription of powered mobility, this research describes the progression of driving skills using a joystick control for powered mobility in typically developing children ages 12 to 24 months. This presentation discusses this research and the possible implications for evidence-based practice.
