Published In: United Kingdom, 01 January 2004
Since the first edition of this book was published in 1984 the intensive debates about the 'correct' method of treatment for children with cerebral palsy have been resolved and it is now possible to describe what is generally agreed to be the optimal approach. This entirely rewritten new edition describes the most up-to-date thinking, with two new editors from America and Australia reflecting the worldwide picture. Coverage includes the coordination of care and the management team; the types of cerebral palsy; assessment; goal-setting; learning and neural plasticity; global therapeutic approaches as well as more focused (topical) therapies; the mechanisms of deformity, its prevention and treatment; and the transition to adult life. This is a completely new book detailing the advancement of the subject over the past 18 years.
