9781890627720: Teaching Motor Skills to Children With Cerebral Palsy And Similar Movement Disorders: A Guide for Parents And Professionals

(2007 Independent Publisher Award Bronze Medalist, Health/Medicine/Nutrition category)

All children with cerebral palsy and other conditions that result in gross motor delays need help and reinforcement to learn basic motor skills, usually with assistance from a physical therapist. Because the degree of developmental delay varies greatly from child to child, a thorough motor evaluation is an important step before establishing a specific therapy plan.

This new guide, written by an experienced physical therapist, provides parents with a complete understanding of how the physical characteristics of cerebral palsy and similar conditions--muscle tightness and weakness, increased or decreased flexibility, abnormal reflexes, impaired sensory perception--affect a child's ability to sit, crawl, stand, and walk.

With that foundation established, the book offers dozens of practical, easy-to-follow exercises that address specific areas of motor delay and development, including:
Head control;
Muscle tone;
Proper positioning;
Involuntary movements;
Stretching and flexibility;
Balance and coordination;
Strength training.

The exercises are illustrated with photos, and many present one or two variations, which take into account a child s preferences and skill level. Additionally, every chapter includes profiles of children in therapy, and a set of frequently asked questions on the chapter topic.

With Teaching Motor Skills, parents will be more knowledgeable about their child's unique set of strengths and weaknesses, and better able to contribute to his motor development. As the book emphasizes, learning new skills depends upon many factors, including the reinforcement of at-home therapy and good cooperation and communication between a child s physical therapist and parents.

About the Author:

Sieglinde Martin, M.S., P.T., is a physical therapist with more than thirty years of clinical experience working with children with cerebral palsy and their families. Ms. Martin earned her degree in physical therapy from the University of Cologne, Germany, and her Master's of Science degree at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Currently she works part-time at Children's Close To Home Health Care Center in Dublin, Ohio. She is also the author of Pediatric Balance Program (Therapy Skill Builders, 1998).

Review:

"These chapters contain numerous helpful photographs that illustrate the exercises, with suggestions of how to incorporate the use of toys to interest the children." --CAPHIS Consumer Connections

"This text is practical, comprehensive, authoritative, and reasonably priced." --ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants, October 9, 2006

The book is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs throughout and the language is clear and simple for the non-specialist to understand. With a wealth of ways to promote good movement learning and many play ideas, the book is a must for parents and professionals alike and will be invaluable for any service wanting to include a child with cerebral palsy.

I highly recommend this book for any new parent of a child with developmental disabilities. It provides parents with a clear description of what they can expect for their child's motor development in the years ahead. --Physical Therapy, Volume 87, Number 7, July 2007

Descripción Woodbine House Inc.,U.S., United States, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Organised 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. While parents can and should practice these exercises at home, the author stresses how success is dependent on parents and therapist working together. 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.
