Moving and Doing Research Program

A research project is being undertaken at Southern Cross University on the Gold Coast investigating the changes in performance that occur when children with neuromotor disorders, such as cerebral palsy, participate in frequent and comprehensive intervention - especially when that therapy is focused on the goals that are most important to the child and their family.
