Purpose: The purpose of this report was to determine the feasibility of short-term modified ride-on car (ROC) use for exploration and enjoyment by children with complex medical needs. Methods: A single-subject research design was used (n = 3; age, 6 months to 5 years). Children were video-recorded using their modified ROC. Results: All children successfully learned how to independently drive a modified ROC. Two of the 3 children demonstrated high levels of enjoyment during use of a modified ROC. Conclusions: Modified ROC use is a feasible and enjoyable powered mobility device for children with complex medical needs.
