Dr. Peter Rosenbaum, Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) Chairman for CPIRF, has co-authored a new book, Cerebral Palsy: From Diagnosis to Adult Life with Dr. Lewis Rosenbloom.
This 224-page paperback is dedicated to family members and caretakers of children with cerebral palsy, as well as adults with CP, doctors and therapists. Cerebral Palsy: From Diagnosis to Adult Life details the nature of CP, its causes and clinical manifestations, using clear, accessible language. The authors explain the underpinnings of CP while sharing that much can be done to promote child and family development, enhance the capabilities of young people with CP, empower their families and chart a course into adulthood.
According to reviewer, Jay P. Goldsmith, MD, Tulane University School of Medicine, “Although one might find many pediatric neurology books that describe CP extensively, none can approach the overall understanding of this disability that this book achieves. He adds, “A Canadian developmental pediatrician [Dr. Rosenbaum] and an English pediatric neurologist [Dr. Rosenbloom] bring two lifetimes of experience to this book, but more importantly, they display their sensitivity and compassion for the people afflicted with cerebral palsy and their families throughout.”
Per CPIRF CEO and President Glenn Tringali, “Dr. Rosenbaum is recognized as among the most experienced developmental pediatric researchers in the world and this book is further evidence of his knowledge and dedication to our field. His tireless support of our Foundation through leadership on the Scientific Advisory Council has been critical to our mission to fund research and educational activities directly relevant to discovering the cause, cure and evidence based care for those with cerebral palsy and related developmental disabilities.”
Professor of Pediatrics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Dr. Rosenbaum is also co-founder of CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research at McMaster, an award-winning multidisciplinary health system-linked research centre. His dedication to CP research is evident in hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and research grants, and several national and international neuropediatric, research and teaching awards.
