Used as both a core textbook in PT programs and as a clinical reference, Physical Therapy for Children, 4th Edition, provides the essential information needed by PTs, both student and professional, when working with children. Like the previous bestselling editions, the 4th edition follows the practice pattern categories of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and uses the IFC model of the disabling process as it presents up-to-date evidence-based coverage of treatment. In this latest edition, Suzann Campbell DeLapp, Robert J. Palisano, and Margo N. Orlin have added more case studies and video clips, additional chapters and Medline-linked references online, and Evidence to Practice boxes to make it easy to find and remember important information.

The book itself was fine. Good information for pediatric physical therapists. The kindle version however, was terrible. It doesn't work with Windows 8 or on smartphones, it only works on my tablet. How useful is an e-book that can only be accessed on one device? Not at all.
My peds teacher recommended this book and it is awesome. The authors do a very comprehensive look at the literature and quality studies. I have found it very useful in deciding treatment and management courses as well as staging children when they come in in different levels/phases of their particular problems. It is also good in that it can be a starting point for additional research.

When studying for a pediatric certification exam, this reference is paramount! I had just bought the previous edition a mere months before this came out, and I had no qualms about buying this latest one. A few caveats here: some chapters were condensed, and may seem a bit bewildering for PTs who are accustomed to the earlier edition - that's why I decided to hang on to my earlier edition for comparison. Also, this one DOES NOT have the DVD accompaniment that the previous editions had; so for videos one has to log online.
Great purchase if you are doing any sort of pediatric PT.
Good condition... Just didn't think this was a great book..
This book is great for anyone taking a course in pediatrics. The chapters are lengthy but informative and well organized. There are plenty of pictures to accompany the information, though I do wish they were in color. There is a ton of description on different pathologies that are likely to be seen in children. There is also a huge section on sports injuries etc. There is also a chapter on the educational environment that I found to be very interesting and helpful not only as a future PT but also as a future mother. This is definitely a book I plan to keep in my library as I think it will be a great reference when I am a practicing PT.
Excellently laid out reference book both for PTs actively practicing in pediatrics and PTs who are required to assess and treat children outside of their more typical practice. Wonderfully evidence based and its use of the ICF as a frame for how each chapter is articulated is so useful for the reader to grasp the most important concepts and apply them. The editors have done a superb job of keeping the contributors on task so that despite the myriad of authors and expertise, the book is cohesive as well as comprehensive. It has been used as a basic textbook in many DPT programs, and appropriately so as it reviews basic concepts about clinical decision making, using research, measurement, motor control and motor learning and then makes clear how those concepts fit into pediatric practice in a way that makes it easier to demonstrate to students how those concepts fit into all areas of PT practice.
I rented this book from Amazon mainly because it was a required textbook for my Pediatrics class. Overall, the book is dense with pathology, in great detail, and above average with exam/eval, but leaves much to be desired with pediatric interventions. The price on Amazon to rent is phenomenal (~$20 for a semester), but if you're looking to buy a book for interventions, this is probably not the book for you.
