Children will participate in an athletic training intervention at Bloorview Research Institute with 16, 45-minute sessions over 6 weeks (twice to three times weekly). They will have two brain scans, one done before and one done after their training. The brain scans will be done at SickKids using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Before, immediately after, and 6-months following the intervention, children will complete assessments to look at how they move. We will also ask questions about how the study is affecting their lives.
Participants will receive a small token of appreciation after each assessment ($20 gift card), and will receive small gifts (e.g. stickers, toys) after each training session to thank them for their time. Parking costs at Holland Bloorview and SickKids will be paid for.
