About this issue
 

This issue contains several articles that illustrate how physical therapy service provision for children is changing.


The lead article by Rowland and colleagues presents the recommendations of our Section on Pediatrics Task Force that described the scope of pediatric physical therapists practice in health promotion and fitness for youth with disabilities. These recommendations provide the guidance we need to move forward with providing greater service to youth with disabilities.


The article by Long and colleagues illustrates what can be learned from a clinical trial designed to provide service to infants with a congenital heart disease – the difficulties they experienced provides useful information not just for researchers but also for clinicians who would provide service to this population of infants.  Extending the theme to another group with medical complexities, Bamonte describes providing care for an infant with 16p11.2 deletion syndrome. Her report is instructive and should be very helpful for students who are learning how to provide high quality care for infants and families in early intervention.


Finally the paper by Thompson and her colleagues illustrate the benefits of providing constraint induced movement therapy for children through a day camp. This more natural environment met with success in achieving some long lasting outcomes, notably improved social functioning.
