FOCUS: Pediatric Power & Early Intervention

This FOCUS publication is dedicated to all the Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) professionals who are providing early intervention services and technology. Nothing is more rewarding that enabling independent mobility for children with disabilities. Numerous studies show far-reaching benefits beyond functional goals such as social development and language skills. The articles, case studies and clinical perspectives contained here demonstrate the effort put forth by the seating and mobility team to provide the best outcomes.

The return on this investment is immeasurable. And that is what CRT is all about.
Weesie Walker, ATP/SMS, NRRTS Executive Director
