Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistant.
This course utilizes text from the hardback textbook by Suzann Campbell “Physical Therapy for Children, 4rd edition” ©2012. Used as both a core textbook in PT programs and as a clinical reference, this text provides essential information when working with children. Physical Therapy for Children follows the practice pattern categories of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and presents evidence-based coverage of treatment in a convenient and concise format. This edition features case studies, and revised chapters with additional information, as well as a three-tiered website with resources for instructors, students and clinicians.
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on neurologic impairments in children including brachial plexus and spinal cord injuries, acquired brain injuries, and Myelodysplasia
