O&P News, September 2016

Students and staff at Wichita State University have launched a program that pairs children with disabilities with toys that fit their needs. It is called “GoBabyGo!” and its mission is to get children active through specially modified off-the-shelf ride-on toy cars.

Originally created in 2006 by James “Cole” Galloway, PT, PhD, professor and associate chair of the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware, the program brings together students of all disciplines interested in innovation and collaboration.
