This landmark title considers all aspects of cerebral palsy from the causes to clinical problems and their implications for individuals.

An international team of experts provides clinicians and researchers with key information on the mechanisms underlying impairments in movement, development, cognition, communication, vision, feeding, behaviour, sexuality, and musculoskeletal deformities.

They present a wide range of person-centred assessment approaches, including clinical evaluation, measurement scales, neuroimaging and gait analysis. The principles of multi-disciplinary management are presented, in terms of therapist intervention, medication and surgery. The perspective of the book spans the lifelong course of cerebral palsy, taking into account worldwide differences in socio-economic and cultural factors. Many chapters are illustrated with clinical vignettes enabling direct translation into practice. Full integrated colour, with extensive cross-referencing make this a highly attractive and useful reference.

Paediatric neurologists, developmental paediatricians, rehabilitation doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, child psychiatrists, physiotherapists speech and language therapists psychologists, occupational therapists and other health and educational professionals.

INDEX 677

The impressive Volume, co-edited by four and with 38 distinct chapters divided between four major sections, is probably the most comprehensive available book on Cerebral Palsy (CP). It is also the first wide-ranging volume since the new definition of CP in 2007, a definition that clearly lifts CP from a mere motor disorder into something else, something broader.
The first section of the book puts CP in a human, global, conceptual, and historical perspective. It is thrilling and inspiring to read about the evolving concept of CP, starting from the early 1800’s, reaching the level of knowledge we possess today. With an understanding of history, it is easier to recognize why treatment paradigms have evolved and why they still differ globally. This section also contains personal and parental perspectives on raising a child or being a child with CP.
The last section of the book is large in content, clinically and practically oriented from a scientific viewpoint. These chapters all provide information about interventions with focus on how to optimize participation, starting from different problem areas.'

Kristina Tedroff, Acta paediatrica, 2015

'The authors of this book are from a variety of clinical disciplines... making it an essential resource for readers across these specialist disciplines.' Annie Rangecroft, Jemma Sudlow and Olivia Smith,

ACPC Journal, 2015.

'Overall, the volume is a comprehensive resource and can be recommended to all professionals working in the field of CP.'

Eugen Boltshauser, Neuropaediatrics, 2015

'Cerebral Palsy: Science and Clinical Practice is a critically needed reference for interdisciplinary health professionals. It's major value is to emphasize both what is known and the challenges of using both our science and care to enhance function and participation across the life course.'
