Course Description:

This course was adapted from the textbook: Physical Therapy for Children, 4th Edition.  It provides the essential information needed by PTs, both student and professional, when working with children. Like the previous bestselling editions, the 4th edition follows the practice pattern categories of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and uses the IFC model of the disabling process as it presents up-to-date evidence-based coverage of treatment. In this latest edition, Suzann Campbell DeLapp, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Robert J. Palisano, PT, ScD and Margo N. Orlin, PT, PhD, have added more case studies and video clips, additional chapters and Medline-linked references online, and Evidence to Practiceboxes to make it easy to find and remember important information.
