Sobre o livro
Therapeutic Exercise for Children With Developmental Disabilities, Fourth Edition, has been expanded and updated to include everything a student or professional needs to know when working with children with developmental disabilities. Continuing the emphasis on evidence-based practice from the previous editions, this comprehensive edition enhances critical thinking and evaluation skills. Throughout the course of the text, Drs. Barbara H. Connolly and Patricia C. Montgomery present case studies of 5 children with various developmental disabilities to bring a problem-solving approach to each individual chapter topic. The case studies include 2 children with cerebral palsy (Gross Motor Function Classification System Levels I and V), a child with myelomeningocele, a child with Down syndrome, and a child with developmental coordination disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Each chapter's examination, evaluation, and intervention recommendations are accompanied by specific treatment objectives and therapeutic activities, plus a companion website with 17 videos, which contains 90 minutes of content to illustrate concepts. Recent research and clinical recommendations, as well as related references, are also provided in each chapter.
