A large number of children in developing countries are born with or develop cerebral palsy. The problem is made worse by inadequate knowledge and treatment facilities. As a result, thousands of children with cerebral palsy live in burdensome dependence upon their families. This tragic situation can be avoided to a great extent by giving treatment early in the child's life and also by guiding families on how to manage the children in ways that help them become independent.

This book is a practical guide designed to help therapists and community workers understand and effectively treat children with cerebral palsy. It focuses on:

- adequately assessing children with cerebral palsy

- designing treatment programmes that can be carried out in partnership with parents and community workers

- assessing and managing eating and drinking difficulties

- making simple and cost-effective equipment

- designing appropriate play activities during therapy

- evaluating and dealing with sensory integration problems in children with cerebral palsy

- closer integration of theory and practical skills.
