As a student physiotherapist I have found the book extremely helpful; in particular, the use of case studies, which help pull together how the theory is applied in practice. This is an ideal textbook for those with limited experience like myself, or for anybody requiring a little refresher on the subject."
Linda Wilkinson, University of Southampton
"This book is a great introduction to paediatric physiotherapy. It is clear, concise and understandable. Pountney has arranged the book so that each chapter is clearly identified, with it's own contents list on the first page in order to enable to the reader to locate the information they need quickly.
The arrangement of topics is logical and the provision of further reading material as well as useful websites is very beneficial for professional development."
Jennifer Louise Oakes, University of Central Lancashire
"Brilliant. At last a British physiotherapy for children publication. The case studies give appropriate examples of what happens in practice. The figures are very illustrative"
Maggie Whittaker, Lecturer, Health & Human Sciences, University of Essex
"There is such a wealth of information in every chapter from authors who are experts in their field of clinical practice. The book is easy to read and would be an excellent study tool for students of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech language therapy to name a few, and for any clinician working in the field of paediatrics or wanting to learn more about paediatrics..I would recommend this as a 'must have' for your bookshelf, and only wish it had been available when I was a student and when I was starting out as an OT..It would be a worthwhile addition to any therapist's bookshelf?.
