Persons with paediatric-onset spinal cord injury 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 spinal cord injury.

This book is intended for clinicians of all disciplines, from those who may only occasionally care for youth with spinal cord injury to those who specialize in spinal cord injury, as well as clinical and basic researchers in the spinal cord injury field.

Topics covered include new developments in pediatric spinal cord injury research, current standards for optimal care, areas lacking scientific evidence, and recommendations for clinical practice and future research.

Readership

INDEX 425

'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

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

Kristin Musselman, Physiotherapy, 2016

'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 is a very practical and useful book for all physicians involved with the care of spinal cord injury, 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 spinal cord injury.'

Deborah Gaebler Spira, Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology, 2015
