Meeting the Physical Therapy Needs of Children / Edition 1

Contemporary management and intervention models for children with special health care needs and disabilities have evolved to match the rapid changes in pediatric service delivery. Susan Effgen and her team of 23 scholars and clinical experts are among the first to address these fundamental shifts in this innovative text. Based on a systems model, not a "disease of the week," this abilities-based text offers theory, clinical applications and skills.
