Young Children Needed for Sitting Balance Study


Contributed by Helene Larin

We are looking for infants between 6 and 9 months of age to help us in a research study which takes place in our Movement Lab on the Ithaca College campus. The study involves testing the sitting balance of infants. You will be asked to bring your infant to our lab for three visits; the first to assess your child development and the other two sessions to test your child’s sitting balance. Each session will require approximately 30 minutes. A $20 incentive will be offered for each session that you and your infant attend.

If you are interested in participating in this project (or if you know someone who might be), please contact Hélène Larin, Physical Therapy, 607-274-3116,
