Cerebral palsy is the most common movement disorder encountered in pediatric physical therapy practice. Physical Therapy for Children With Cerebral Palsy: An Evidence-Based Approach is a unique, comprehensive reference that focuses on physical therapy management of children with cerebral palsy through the analysis and synthesis of published research, and it offers learning opportunities to a wide reading audience. Inside, Dr. Mary Rahlin examines the current approach to the diagnosis and classification of cerebral palsy and explores the research evidence related to prognosis; medical management; and physical therapy examination, evaluation, and intervention for children with this condition. Physical Therapy for Children With Cerebral Palsy analyzes cerebral palsy as a lifespan condition and utilizes the framework of International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Other unique features include “Questions to Ponder” and “Suggested Questions for Future Research” at the end of each chapter. These are intended to generate healthy professional debate on a variety of topics, both in the classroom and in the clinic. Also included with Physical Therapy for Children With Cerebral Palsy is online access to video clips that accompany the text and highlight typical and atypical development, use of assistive technology, life span issues, and transition to adulthood.
