Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home
The long awaited new edition of this classic, popular text has been completely revised and expanded to include a profusion of new information for parents.
Since the first edition was published, ideas on appropriate therapies have changed and developed, new concepts underpinning therapeutic intervention have evolved. Similarly opinion on early intervention with therapeutic programmes has changed and the method of delivery of service has moved away from centralisation to home based or community provision. This new edition takes full account of these changes.
The fundamental approach however, remains the same and the emphasis throughout the text is on a holistic approach to the child's needs. Also the concept of handling, developed by Berti and Karel Bobath continues to form the basis of each of the chapters. Throughout the book the methods and ideas proposed indicate ways in which parents can handle their child to enable him to practice newly acquired motor skills throughout the day.
Written primarily for parents the third edition of Handling the Young Child withCerebral Palsy at Home will also provide an invaluable resource for all those involved in helping the child with cerebral palsy towards achieving his or her potential for independence in movement and functional activities.
