Overview
A practical guide to the many simple things that can be done to help children with cerebral palsy grow and develop in the best possible way. Addressed to the mid-level rehabilitation worker, the manual describes training activities, to be performed with the assistance of family members, that promote the child's mobility, self-care, and independence. Using simple text and abundant illustrations, the manual also provides advice on the early detection of cerebral palsy and the assessment of a child's developmental level. Information ranges from a list of questions frequently asked by families, to instructions for constructing special seats and tables from cardboard boxes, to detailed guidelines for the assessment and treatment of contractures. Proposed exercises and activities are in line with the need to make training practical and relevant to family life, a part of the daily routine, and fun for the child. Emphasizing the need to prevent deformities as well as to promote development, the manual also shows how to construct splints and other equipment using local, readily available materials. Particular attention is given to the importance of good handling and positioning of the child's body.
