 As part of a National Science Foundation grant, we are gathering information about the issues that children and families face when a child's independent mobility is delayed, or when support is required to be independently mobile.  We would like to speak with parents of children with mobility needs, or individuals who as young children experienced mobility needs. We need just 15 minutes of your time. If you can help, please contact Sharon Stansfield (sstansfield@ithaca.edu) or Carole Dennis (cdennis@ithaca.edu).  Thank you!
