Item Description...
Written by an experienced physical therapist, this practical guide gives parents the keys they need to help their child with cerebral palsy or another developmental delay master gross motor skills beginning in infancy. Organized in the sequence children acquire gross motor skills, this guide explains how motor development unfolds, and how cerebral palsy can affect this development. There are dozens of illustrated exercises that can help children gradually strengthen back, neck and tummy muscles and then master motor skills, such as head control, sitting, crawling, standing, and walking. Real-life vignettes provide examples of how parents, children, and physical therapists interact, what difficulties can arise and how to try and work through them. The author guides parents step-by-step through techniques and practical exercises that address such issues as: ? head control ? muscle tone ? proper positioning ? involuntary movements ? stretching and flexibility ? balance and coordination ? strength training this practical guide makes it easy for parents and other caregivers to reinforce at home the exercises introduced by a child's physical therapist.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Really Good Home Guide  Sep 9, 2008
My son has an undiagnosed developmental delay - similar to cerebral palsy. He is 20 months old and I am so glad that I found this book while he was young (although I wish I had been stretching him since infanthood). We have excellent therapists, but this book is a great reminder of how important home therapy is - and it serves as a reminder to me of the exercises the therapists do. Easy to read and the pictures are a good guide.
A must have for parents of children with CP  Jul 6, 2008
This book is filled with helpful, easy to understand info for parents of kids with CP. My daughter is 3 and I wish I had it when she was an infant. I haven't finished reading it, but have learned alot. Her physical therapist even uses one of the walking suggestions (using a hula hoop) and says it's a great idea.
Motor Skills for children with Cerebral  Feb 8, 2008
Great book! Very helpful for parents of children with CP. Book was received quickly and was in very good condition.
Great book for special needs child  Dec 17, 2007
This book is a great help for many types of motor delays other than cerebral palsy. Highly recommended by the mother of a special needs toddler who is not walking or standing.
Sp. Ed. Staff/Parents Need this Book  Jul 3, 2007
I work with students with severe and profound multiple disabilities (3-22 years)and I have found this book helpful when explaining things to my staff and parents. It really is written so anyone can understand and the chapter breakdown lets you go right to the skill without having to read the whole thing. My OT and PT also checked it out and loved the "Tummy Time" section. I would also reccomend "Children with Disabilities" by Batshaw. This is a must in a professional (or personal) resource library.
