Summary Based on the caregiving approach developed at the Cerebral Palsy Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Children's Seashore House, this daily-use handbook draws on the experience of pediatricians and orthopedic surgeons as well as physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, social workers, educators, and administrators. It presents a conceptual framework for care delivery and emphasizes goals for development and competency in family and community settings.
An in-depth, practical resource, it is a must for physicians, nurses, therapists, educators, social workers, home visitors, and families who want to make sound, collaborative caregiving decisions.
