Virtual Issue Collection: Evaluating Interventions in Cerebral Palsy


Welcome to Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology’s “Evaluating Interventions in Cerebral Palsy” Virtual Issue

All articles in this virtual issue are freely available and have been specially selected by the editors. It includes relevant and contemporary papers on “Evaluating Interventions in Cerebral Palsy”, published on Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology.

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of physical disability in children and around 90% of children born with CP survive into adulthood. Various therapeutic approaches aim to meet the challenge of improving function and quality of life in individuals with CP. DMCN presents several recent papers which evaluate some recently developed interventions and contribute evidence to inform current and future practice.
