A New Physical Therapy Program Improves Sitting and Play Skills for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of movement disability in children. CP can result from brain damage before, during, or soon after birth, and it can be mild, moderate or severe. Children with CP often have trouble coordinating their body movements. As a result, they may be delayed in learning to sit without support. Independent sitting is an important milestone that can help children explore and play with objects more effectively and if not achieved, can delay development in other areas.

For lower-income families dealing with childhood TBI, a web-based parent training program shows promise

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain from an external force. When a child experiences a TBI, it impacts the whole family, especially the parents. Dealing with new medical needs, changes in mood and behavior, and all the associated costs can ratchet up parental distress. For lower-income families, adding financial issues and poor access to care and services can be a recipe for crisis.
