The SIT-PT research team is comparing the effectiveness of two physical therapy interventions for young children with or at high risk of having cerebral palsy.
Through this study, we hope to better understand which intervention approach is best to promote children’s early development and readiness to learn.
Two different interventions will be delivered and compared in the SIT-PT study.
Sitting Together and Reaching To Play
Targets sitting, reaching and motor-based problem-solving in infancy to improve global development.
Movement, Orientation, Repetition and Exercise Physical Therapy
Focuses on moving, building strength and increasing flexibility in infancy to improve motor skills and limit impairments.
