The 4th edition of Finnie’s Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home has been updated to reflect the current practices of today. It aims to help parents assist their child with cerebral palsy (CP) towards achieving the most comfortable independence in all activities. It is hoped to show how, by using typical parenting skills, which involve guiding and exposing a child to develop through challenging experiences, the child with CP will also develop. The book is also intended to help professionals and other carers new to this field understand, support and encourage young children with CP and their families.Table of Contents: DedicationList of contributorsForeword by Philippa RussellAcknowledgementsIntroductionSuggestions on how to use this bookChapter 1 Communication between parents and professionals - Revised by E BowerChapter 2 Preparing for and coping with hospital appointments, assessments and admissions - C Fitzgerald & T Kerr ElliottChapter 3 Medical aspects of cerebral palsy: causes, associated problems and management - D ReddihoughChapter 4 The role of different brain-imaging techniques in the diagnosis of cerebral palsy - I Krägeloh-Mann & M WilkeChapter 5 Epilepsy in cerebral palsy - R Guerrini & S PellacaniChapter 6 Parents’ problems - J Bavin & E BowerChapter 7 Learning and behaviour: the psychologist’s role - M GardnerChapter 8 Emotional health - C Laver-BradburyChapter 9 Parents’ contribution to early learning: developing a dialogue using touch, sight, hearing and communication - Revised by E BowerChapter 10 Understanding movement, both typical and in the child with cerebral palsy - Revised by E BowerChapter 11 Handling - Revised by E BowerChapter 12 Sleeping - J BeaumontChapter 13 Feeding - H CockerillChapter 14 Lifting and carrying - J GrahamChapter 15 Toilet training - AJ Wright & R KellyChapter 16 Bathing - Revised by E BowerChapter 17 Dressing - Revised by E BowerChapter 18 Communication - H CockerillChapter 19 Hand function and fine motor activities - D GreenChapter 20 Gross motor development in children with cerebral palsy: what do we know, and how may that knowledge help? - P RosenbaumChapter 21 Chairs, pushchairs and car seats - Revised by E BowerChapter 22 Aids to mobility - Revised by E BowerChapter 23 Play - Revised by E BowerChapter 24 Leisure and fitness - Revised by E BowerChapter 25 Deformity: growth and the problems of getting taller - D ScruttonChapter 26 Orthoses and Children with cerebral palsy - C MorrisChapter 27 Spasticity - DS Roy & JF McLaughlinChapter 28 Complementary and alternative medicine in cerebral palsy - M BowerAppendix 1: An overview of the first five stages of sensorimotor development in a child with typical movementAppendix 2: A typical child's gross motor developmentAppendix 3: Validated measures of motor development and function which can be used for children with cerebral palsyAppendix 4: Using the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) for intervention planning in children 0-5 yearsAppendix 5: Glossary of some of the terms used by therapistsIndex
