Ensure children with disabilities and special healthcare needs achieve their full potential. Noted authority Susan Effgen and a team of scholars and clinical experts explore the role of the physical therapist in meeting the needs of children and their families in a culturally appropriate context using a family-centered, abilities-based model.
The 2nd Edition of this landmark text has been thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded to encompass all of today’s new theories, clinical applications, and skills. From the major body systems to assistive technology and intervention support, you’ll develop the clinical knowledge you need to provide a child with the very best care from initial examination to graduation from your services.
A bonus DVD packaged with each book features narrated videos of children during intervention.
There are not many pictures but the book is a great read. There are good explanations and treatments in the book.
Overall the book provides good information for individuals interested in pediatric therapy, but is not as comprehensive as I would have liked. It briefly discusses the developmental stages in a chart, but is not extremely detailed. The book provides great information with case studies, but it limited to 7 disorders.
