Cerebral Palsy: A Practical Guide for Rehabilitation Professionals (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Psiche Giannoni, Liliana Zerbino
This book helps rehabilitators and caregivers understand the multifaceted needs of children with cerebral palsy or other neuromotor impairments in order to plan and implement an effective treatment regimen. Drawing on the authors’ extensive experience spanning several decades, it addresses the sensitive challenge of rehabilitation, which cannot and must not be confined by the rigid schemes of established schools. In particular, the book provides numerous practical suggestions, intended to guide the reader through correct clinical reasoning, setting goals and subsequent treatment. Furthermore, it includes chapters on evaluating and treating the upper limbs, feeding and communication problems, as well as on the care of soft tissues and the management of the visual difficulties in these children.
The book is a valuable resource for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and other caregivers.
