Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Community Rehabilitation in Neurology is...a useful and timely addition to the published work. This book will help hospital-based clinicians understand the climate and issues surrounding the delivery of community services to those patients they see only in a hospital setting." Diane Playford, The Lancet, Neurology

"[A] well-written, comprehensive book...One of the book's strongest qualities is its applicability to the work performed in paediatric rehabilitation the world over, benefiting all professionals engaged in rehabilitation, regardless of where they practice. We highly recommend this book." Lucia Willadino Braga, Marc A. Forman, Pediatric Rehabilitation
