This book, now in its third edition, has now become the foundation of our field. In studying for the Pediatric Specialty Exam given by the American Physical Therapy Association, we, in our study group, have found this book to be an invaluable compilation of evidence-based therapy for virtually every major pediatric diagnosis requiring physical therapy intervention. We all thank you, Suzanne Campbell, for a thorough job well done.

My peds teacher recommended this book and it is awesome. The authors do a very comprehensive look at the literature and quality studies. I have found it very useful in deciding treatment and management courses as well as staging children when they come in in different levels/phases of their particular problems. It is also good in that it can be a starting point for additional research.

My primary practice is outpatient orthopedics with just a small portion of my patient population falling in the area of pediatrics. I love this book as a reference and have found it invaluable time and time again.

When studying for a pediatric certification exam, this reference is paramount! I had just bought the previous edition a mere months before this came out, and I had no qualms about buying this latest one. A few caveats here: some chapters were condensed, and may seem a bit bewildering for PTs who are accustomed to the earlier edition - that's why I decided to hang on to my earlier edition for comparison. Also, this one DOES NOT have the DVD accompaniment that the previous editions had; so for videos one has to log online.

I recently finished my pediatric course- and I legitimately read this book cover to cover twice. I have to say there were a few things I was unhappy with. 1) In a box about Osteogenisis Imperfecta: it says "Trian Ulnar face noted" instead of Triangular face noted 2) Pictures are fuzzy and look like they have been taken from Google image or a random stock image 3) Compared with Tecklin there isn't enough photos- Would it kill these people to add an arrow now and again! The DMD chapter didn't have the Gower's sign? I had to google so much while using this text, due to vague photos. 4) A photo in the Orthopedic chapter looks like it was make quickly on Microsoft Paint before printing 5) I hardly saw any references since the last edition (What am I paying 95+ bucks for?!) 6) I can't say how many times I read about Family education without explanation or elaboration (they could have cut 30 pages by eliminating this in every chapter some times multiple times!!)

Overall, this was Textbook was disappointing. I found some points overly generalize and didn't expand on other areas. Unfortunately my teacher focused on it

Excellently laid out reference book both for PTs actively practicing in pediatrics and PTs who are required to assess and treat children outside of their more typical practice. Wonderfully evidence based and its use of the ICF as a frame for how each chapter is articulated is so useful for the reader to grasp the most important concepts and apply them. The editors have done a superb job of keeping the contributors on task so that despite the myriad of authors and expertise, the book is cohesive as well as comprehensive. It has been used as a basic textbook in many DPT programs, and appropriately so as it reviews basic concepts about clinical decision making, using research, measurement, motor control and motor learning and then makes clear how those concepts fit into pediatric practice in a way that makes it easier to demonstrate to students how those concepts fit into all areas of PT practice.

The book itself was fine. Good information for pediatric physical therapists. The kindle version however, was terrible. It doesn't work with Windows 8 or on smartphones, it only works on my tablet. How useful is an e-book that can only be accessed on one device? Not at all.

Bought this book from s_r_books. Initial post was delivered to wrong address. Informed the seller and they shipped a second book immediately by priority post. Received both books the same day and returned one book back. Excellent buyer.
