What products do preschoolers with disabilities need in the bathtub?



We will study the needs, challenges, and approaches used to position preschoolers with disabilities for bathing activities at home. Focus groups with groups of parents and therapists will give us a practical way to evaluate and develop better bath products for young children with seating needs.
