Social Interaction and Leisure Participation in Children with Motor Impairments who use a Powered Wheelchair

The objective of this study is to examine if differences exist in the participation of children, aged 6 to 19 years, in social and leisure activities, and who have access to power wheelchairs at school, at home, and/or in the community. The Assessment of Life-Habits will be administered to participants to compare social and leisure participation. During a follow-up phone interview with the parents the Functional Independence Measure for Children (WeeFIM) will be administered in order to establish baseline measures of functional independence.
