Mac Keith Press are proud to announce the publication of Children and Youth with Complex Cerebral Palsy: Care and Management, edited by Laurie Glader and Richard Stevenson. Mac Keith Press are offering members of the AusACPDM a 20% discount to purchase this book.

This is the first book to explore the management of the many medical comorbidities that children with complex cerebral palsy often encounter, including orthopedic concerns, mobility and equipment needs, cognition and sensory impairment, difficult behaviors, seizures, respiratory complications and nutritional challenges, among many others. In addition, adaptable care tools will be provided both in the text and as a downloadable resource, to guide clinicians in evaluation, preventive care and crisis management.

Importantly, the book includes contributions from parents of children with cerebral palsy and youth with cerebral palsy, providing unique and critical wisdom for family-centred care.  Parents and families of children and youth with complex cerebral palsy will particularly appreciate the inclusion of chapters on adolescence, transition to adulthood, and growing up well with cerebral palsy.

• Provides useful summary points of key recommendations at the end of each chapter.
• Includes Clinical Care Tools to guide clinicians in evaluation, preventive care and crisis management.
• Care Tools include a Medical Review Supplement, Equipment and Services Checklist and an ICF-Based Care: Goals and Management Form.
