Persons with paediatric-onset spinal cord injury (SCI) also have unique developmental needs. They experience the typical ongoing challenges of each developmental stage (e.g. childhood, adolescence) as well as changes owing to their SCI. This book is intended for clinicians of all disciplines, from those who may only occasionally care for youth with SCI to those who specialize in SCI, as well as clinical and basic researchers in the SCI field. Topics covered include new developments in paediatric SCI research, current standards for optimal care, areas lacking scientific evidence, and recommendations for clinical practice and future research.

Readership:  Developmental paediatricians, paediatric intensivists, paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, neurologists, urologists, plastic surgeons, psychologists,  occupational, speech, and physical therapists, biomedical/rehabilitation engineers, nurses,  life care planners, orthotists.

'This is a very practical and useful book for all physicians involved with the care of SCI, including those in acute care management as well as chronic care such as physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and pediatricians. I anticipate. Spinal Cord Injury in the Child and Young Adult will become the ‘go-to’ book for the care and rehabilitation for children and young adults with SCI.' Deborah Gaebler Spira, Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology, 2015.

'The book is an easy read and inspiring. The chapters are well–structured, with subtitles, they usually start with a case vignette introducing the topic, and they end with a concise summary. Numerous tables, schematic diagrams, and score sheets facilitate the overview.' Eugen Boltshauser, Neuropediatrics, 2015

'[This book] is an excellent introduction to SCI, but discusses topics in sufficient depth that a clinician with expertise in SCI would also find it useful. The authors provide practical, evidence-based recommendations for assessment and treatment.' Kristin Musselman, Physiotherapy , 2016.

'This is not a step by step 'how to care for a child with spinal cord injury', but a very informative, well written and evidenced book covering a whole collection of areas required in the care of a child with spinal cord injury.' Kristen Hart, APCP Journal, 2015.
