Children with Cerebral Palsy: A Parents' Guide

by Elaine Gieralis

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Cerebral palsy affects one in every 500 children. This lifelong disability resulting from damage to the brain before, during, or soon after birth encompasses a wide variety of disorders that affect one's ability to control muscles and posture. This volume, featuring contributions from professional caregivers, therapists, and parents, provides a thorough description of cerebral palsy, its diagnosis and treatment, and its effects on development. Practical hints on the daily care of the afflicted child are offered, as well as help in seeking out and understanding the role of occupational, physical, and speech therapy. A guide to early intervention, special education, and an outline of legal rights are included. The extensive listing of federal, state, and local government agencies as well as parent and professional groups is especially useful. (Appendixes, including glossary, bibliography, and list of special equipment suppliers not seen.) For consumer health collections.-- Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Foundation
