Research shows that independent mobility changes the way children think about space, objects and social interaction. Based on this, Cole Galloway, PT, PhD, at the University of Delaware, founded GoBabyGo to make mobility devices accessible, affordable and easy to use for all children. Go Baby Go-trained professionals modify ride-on toy cars for children with movement difficulties. Nebraska’s chapter was funded by the Munroe-Meyer Guild in 2016. This established a partnership between MMI PT, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center PT, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) engineering department and the College of Allied Health Professions/Physical Therapy students. GoBabyGo! Nebraska! builds and gives away modified ride-on cars twice annually to children who may benefit.
