Reviews

"For the clinician, it is of immense value to get a thorough and structured update of all current evidence in the field of hand function in CP. This book is really recommended." Marianne Arner, Acta Paediatrica, 2009"The chapters are concise and readable, and in many cases have helpful summaries of the evidence base. It is possible to read each chapter in isolation, and there is some overlap in presentation of the evidence bases from different perspectives, e.g. as it relates specific assessment tools or interventions." Anne Gordon, DMCN, 2009"The book is essential reading for those professionals of different disciplines who work extensively with children with cerebral palsy." Adrian Sandler, J Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, 2009"This is a highly useful reference that will more than likely be read and reread with new insights gained each and every time. The ideas behind the different treatment strategies and suggestions for interventions remain fresh and optimistic. The concept of present studies to back up and support each treatment approach is specially impressive and noteworthy." Debby Schwartz, Journal of Hand Therapy, 2009
