Treatment of Cerebral Palsy and Motor Delay is first and foremost a practical book, a distillation of Sophie Levitt’s considerable experience in treating those affected by cerebral palsy. This fifth edition outlines therapeutic approaches and suggests treatment and management options, providing a wealth of practical information, supported by clear diagrams and photographs, on assessment, management and treatment.  The book emphasises an eclectic, holistic approach, and integrates current ideas on motor control and motor learning in a further development of Levitt’s Collaborative Learning Approach.  This new edition provides greater commentary on evidence-based practice, as well as practical, updated information on the use of botulinum toxin, orthopaedic surgery and the therapist's role following these procedures.

From the Foreword:

"I greatly welcome the fifth edition of this book which brings together the management of cerebral palsies into a comprehensive but readable form... This book is in my view an essential part of both a therapist’s and doctor’s basic understanding of the subject... This book remains essential for those managing children with disability." —Brian Neville, Professor of Childhood Epilepsy, Professor of Paediatric Neurology, University College London, Institute of Child Health/Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust.
