This small monograph is designed to help the physiotherapist understand the peculiar needs of children regarding physiotherapy. The author feels there is a lack of specialized knowledge in this field and has therefore put down her own impressions after an extended experience in the field of physiotherapy with infants and young children. A special section of exercises for babies is included.
