Description: This is a revised, updated, and expanded second edition of an excellent textbook. It contains material on a wide range of pediatric diagnoses, examining both the medical aspects and the therapeutic interventions indicated for each diagnostic group. The material on motor skill development and testing provides a framework for assessment and treatment in the subsequent pediatric categories.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide current information about various disabilities and to describe the skills needed to evaluate and treat a child with such a disability.
Audience: The book is written for the entry-level physical therapy student and novice therapist; however, the comprehensiveness and detail with which it is written makes this book an interesting and valuable resource for an experienced physical and occupational therapist. The author and the contributors are very credible in their fields and represent a variety of clinical settings.
Features: The text has a very clean, legible quality to it. The black-and-white photographs are a useful adjunct to the text; however, the clarity of a number of photographs could be improved. The figures, tables, and displays are well presented, concise, and very informative. The use of case studies emphasizes the clinical relevance of the topic. The references are numerous and relevant. The index is useful and clearly arranged.
Assessment: This is an excellent textbook for the entry-level physical therapy student and the pediatric therapist. Its comprehensive presentation of therapeutic management of the pediatric patient, from infancy to early adulthood, makes this book a valuable resource.
