I am working with a group of PT students at the University of Missouri to create a series of short YouTube videos that we can use to reinforce parent training for GoBabyGo cars. We want to create a different video to cover each of the areas of training we provide to parents. The goal is not to replace our existing training, but rather to give parents something to refer back to later if needed.
So far, these are the areas we are considering:
Switch Style (Floor Pedal, Big Red, Arcade Button, 3D-printed, sit-to-stand)
Seating System (Lap Belt, 5-point Harness, PVC structure)
Control Mechanisms (“Kill” Switch, Gear Shift, On/Off Switch, Relays, Wild Thing controls)
Charging (Direct to battery, charging port)
Training Activities / Play Ideas
We have two questions for the GBGConnect community:
Specifically for the “Training Activities / Play Ideas” category, are there any activities you like to recommend to families? I generally default to saying, “Just play!” but I know some folks give more specific examples.
What else are we missing? Are there other training areas or specific common build options we should incorporate? If we are successful and open this up to broader use, what would make it useful to your chapter?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
