Finnie's Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home , 4th Edition
Over the years since the first edition of this book was written ideas on appropriate therapies have changed and developed. Similarly opinion on early intervention has changed and the method of delivery of service has in some places moved from centralisation to home-based or community provision. The emphasis of this new edition however remains on a holistic approach to the child's needs seeing the difficulties in relation to the overall development of the child as a unique person from childhood to adulthood.
- Assessment procedures and prediction of future abilities
- Management of problems (including medication if appropriate) such as epilepsy, constipation, eneurisis, nourishment, difficulty with sleeping, crying, temper tantrums, sensory deficits and deformity
- Stimulation, fitness, problem solving, compensatory strategies and ease of management

The information in the fourth edition of Finnie's Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home has been extensively rewritten and much new information has been added. Throughout the book the emphasis has been changed from infant to child and the way problems and interventions change as the child grows. Overall the book is very well done and clearly written, definitely worth getting the new edition in consumer health libraries.
