Critically ill infants in the newborn period are at high risk of developmental motor disorders. Mijna Hadders-Algra comprehensively addresses how best to detect which infants will be later diagnosed and how best to enact early intervention to improve their quality of life. Parts I & II provide an overview of the clinical picture and neurodevelopmental mechanisms. In Parts III & IV basic principles and features governing typical and atypical motor development are explained. Part V summarises assessment methods and Part VI discusses the methods and effectiveness of early intervention.

  • Provides practical clinical strategies to improve care of children with or at risk of developmental motor disorders (such as cerebral palsy or developmental co-ordination disorder).
  • Pays special attention to the family and environmental adaptations.
  • Video-clips illustrate typical and atypical movements.
  • Consistent use of the ICF as a framework.

From the Foreword

“The combination of theoretical and practical information with some really philosophical insights provide value for clinicians and for those wanting to teach and expand the evidence base in this area for the future.”

Readership

This evidence-based practical guidance will be useful for health professionals working in the field of early detection and early intervention including paediatricians, developmental paediatricians, neonatologists, child neurologists, paediatric physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and educationalists.
