A comprehensive survey of the problems of cerebral palsy is contained in this very readable monograph. The author gives an objective and broadminded appraisal of the existing methods used in diagnosis and treatment of persons with cerebral palsy and suggests desirable avenues of research.

The contents also include a well conceived state program, a section on professional training and a discussion of cerebral palsy as a socioeconomic problem.

This monograph will prove to be of value to members not only of the medical profession but also of other professions whose activities touch on this problem.
