A PPT Journal course – in Partnership with The Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy

This article, published in Winter 2016 issue of the Pediatric Physical Therapy journal, is a single-subject, alternating design which compared the effect of two different playground environments on the documented physical activity of 5 children with ambulatory cerebral palsy over three sessions. Descriptive and objective comparative measures were used to document increased PA in 4 of 5 participants on the ADA-compliant playground. Other influencing factors are also discussed.
