About this issue

This issue begins with a Guest Editorial by Chan, Heinemann and Roberts that outlines the efforts being taken by editors of journals in rehabilitation medicine, physical therapy and other health professions to improve the quality of written reports of research, systematic reviews, and case studies.  I encourage all who anticipate writing for publication to read this editorial, which is appearing simultaneously in more than 25 journals.  Higher standards for written reports will be going into effect for Pediatric Physical Therapy beginning in January 2015.

The first two articles in the issue are systematic reviews of interventions for children with cerebral palsy.  Chiu and Ada report on functional electrical stimulation, and Chen, Lee and Howard present their findings of a meta-analysis of the use of virtual reality.  These are important contributions to our literature and I encourage all to read these reviews.
