This book is a practical resource for physiotherapists and occupational therapists who support people with cerebral palsy, helping them to solve the problems with movement and other impairments that so often accompany cerebral palsy, so that they can be more active and better able to participate in roles such as study, work, recreation and relationships. The first chapters provide the background to the clinical reasoning approach that informs the whole text, as well as an overview of therapeutic interventions. The subsequent chapters present clinical situations that therapists will encounter in the course of their work with individuals with cerebral palsy across the lifespan. Each chapter describes a case in detail, including the reasoning behind assessment and treatment choices, interventions and outcomes. The themes emphasized throughout the book are the use of the clinical reasoning approach of the intervention process model, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health as a framework to help therapists inform patient and family decision-making, family-centred approaches in developing and implementing therapeutic strategies, and multidisciplinary team work.

Durch die gläserne Tür - Lebensbericht einer Autistin

Der große amerikanische Kinoerfolg „Rain Man“ erzählt die Geschichte des Autisten Raymond mit anrührender Unmittelbarkeit und unpathetischer Leichtigkeit. Ebenso eindringlich und geradeaus ist die Geschichte der Autistin Temple Grandin, die übrigens mithalf, „Rain Man“ - Hauptdarsteller Dustin Hoffman auf seine anspruchsvolle Rolle vorzubereiten. Aus ihrer außergewöhnlichen Perspektive schildert Temple Grandin ihren zähen Kampf gegen die bizarren Symptome des Autismus: etwa das Unvermögen, ihre Bewegungen zu kontrollieren, die Besessenheit mit einer Beschäftigung, ihre Geräuschempfindlichkeit, die Überreiztheit ihres Nervensystems überhaupt, oder ihre anfängliche totale Unfähigkeit, mittels Sprache oder auch nur Körperkontakt eine Verbindung zur Außenwelt herzustellen - obwohl sie gerade dies sehnlichst wünschte. Dass es ihr schließlich dennoch glückte, sich aus ihrem gläsernen Gefängnis zu befreien, verdankt sie ihrem eigenen Erfindungsreichtum: Sie konstruierte einen Apparat, mit dessen Hilfe sie körperliche Berührung zulassen, aber auch kontrollieren konnte. Diese „Zaubermaschine“ wie auch die liebevolle Zuwendung einiger weniger Menschen öffneten ihr den Weg durch die gläserne Tür in die reale Welt.
