GoBabyGo is promoting mobility in young children through a unique multidisciplinary project housed in CSU's Center for Innovation in Medical Professions. Together with GoBabyGo families and researchers around the world, CSU faculty, students and community partners are developing low-cost, high-impact technologies ranging from battery-powered, ride-on cars for infants to hands-free harness systems for older adults.
Every GoBabyGo car is tailored to a specific child’s therapeutic goals and helps fulfill the universal need for independence, exploration and play. Collaborations with partners and sponsors across Northeast Ohio help ensure any family can access GoBabyGo resources, participate in our programs and benefit from our services, regardless of income or ability.

Engage with GoBabyGo
GoBabyGo is putting babies in the driver's seat with the Children's Museum of Cleveland through enrichment activities and social experiences for children and their families outside of home school. Sensory Friendly Time at Cleveland State offers families a fun, safe environment to intact with each other and access race cars, tracks or harnesss systems. Children may bring their own mobility device or test drive one in the GoBabyGo Lab with the CSU team of therapists, engineers and educators. Families: register here for one of our many "Museum without Walls" events this spring.
Workshops and Demonstrations
Join the GoBabyGo team and Replay for Kids for the next hands-on workshop and learn how to make basic modifications to seating, steering and drive systems that match the mobility needs of a special child. Ideal for professionals, community members and families seeking a better understanding of the practical aspects of assistive technologies in early childhood.
