"Designed to provide readers with an understanding of cerebral palsy (CP) as a developmental as well as a neurological condition this book details the nature of CP, its causes, and its clinical manifestations. Using clear accessible language (supported by an extensive glossary) the authors blend current science with metaphor both to explain the biomedical underpinning of CP and to share their awareness that there is much that can be done to promote child and family development, enhance the capabilities of young people with CP, empower their families, and chart a course into adulthood." - BOOK JACKET
