Lisa A. Kurtz presents a holistic approach to treatment, equipping the reader with knowledge of a wide range of therapeutic methods and awareness of the many available options. Full of practical help and a comprehensive list of resources, this is essential reading for anyone caring for, or working with, children with developmental motor concerns.
