PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to examine how perceived barriers change before and after a 3-month period of modified ride-on car use.
METHODS: This study used a qualitative content analysis of perceived barriers. Fourteen caregivers (13 mothers; 1 grandmother) responded to a single-question, free-response survey before and after a 3-month period of modified ride-on car use.
RESULTS: A total of 11 and 20 perceived barriers were reported before and after the 3-month period. Environmental barriers were the most frequently reported before and after the 3-month period.
CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric physical therapists need to be aware of the potential perceived barriers that families may experience in regard to young children with disabilities using modified ride-on cars and determine strategies to support families on an individual basis.
