Families are profoundly affected by a child's brain injury, and their participation and support play a critical role in the child's adjustment and ongoing development. As such, today's literature contains a growing number of studies that document the importance of the family's role in the child's recovery.
Edited by two experts from the cerebral palsy unit at the distinguished SARAH Network of Hospitals in Brasilia, Brazil, this book is designed for rehabilitation professionals and provides important guidelines for training parents and involving the family in the rehabilitation process.
Including 200 line figures representing SARAH's novel neurodevelopmental exercises, as well as a CD-ROM with printable versions of all neurodevelopmental exercises included in the book, as well as some additional ones, The Child with Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy prepares rehabilitation professionals for training the family to perform, at home, a rehabilitation program developed by an interdisciplinary team.
Clearly presented and easy to follow, this important work will appeal to physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists/teachers and all professionals who care for children with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and developmental delay.
