"This text is practical, comprehensive, authoritative, and reasonably priced." --ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants, October 9, 2006
The book is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs throughout and the language is clear and simple for the non-specialist to understand. With a wealth of ways to promote good movement learning and many play ideas, the book is a must for parents and professionals alike and will be invaluable for any service wanting to include a child with cerebral palsy.
I highly recommend this book for any new parent of a child with developmental disabilities. It provides parents with a clear description of what they can expect for their child's motor development in the years ahead. --Physical Therapy, Volume 87, Number 7, July 2007
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
1) It provides a realistic milestone chart- something I've never been able to refer to in other books on child development.
2) It gives great advice no PT ever mentioned. For example, to never put socks on your child.
3) It gives a point-blank explanation of what to do NOW for your child, and to what NOT to wait for. No one ever told me alot of these things
Granted, it was depressing at points, but this book sort of slapped me in the face about motor skills. The book talks alot about how time is Not on your child's side, and it motivated me and other caregivers to do MORE INTENSIVE therapy with my girl.
