Summary This book is the result of studies on cerebral palsy (CP) in children that the authors and their collaborators (medical doctors and therapists) have carried out in recent years. It addresses the main topics associated with the evaluation of adaptive functions in the spastic forms of CP (definition and modifications over the most recent decades, newly classified orientations, etiopathogenesis, anatomic-functional correlations, semiotics, and the so-called associated disorders: visual, cognitive, and behavioral). The main goal of this book is to offer readily accessible information on the nature of the disease, the problems correlated with prognosis, and the rehabilitation. Because of its instructive nature and practical approach, the book will be an invaluable tool for practitioners already working in this field (medical doctors, child neuropsychiatrists and physiatrists, and rehabilitation therapists), for university students studying physical and occupational therapy, and for residents in rehabilitative medicine, child neurology, and orthopedics
