The authors have developed in sixty-nine pages a surprisingly complete description of the diagnosis, classification, and treatment of cerebral palsy. The value of total evaluation of the patient is stressed, and proper emphasis is given to the emotional needs and associated handicaps these patients invariably have. The book summarizes and reflects the thinking of other noted authorities in the field of cerebral palsy. The material should be valuable to medical practitioners as well as to those professional workers in the various ancillary services who render treatment to the cerebral palsied child.
