Evaluating an Integrated Approach to the Management of Cerebral Palsy. Appendix A: IMCP Documentation Handbook. Volume II of IV. Final Report.
Heal, Laird W.; And Others
The appendix is a guide to the curriculum and training procedures of the Integrated Management of Cerebral Palsy project which evaluated the effectiveness of a program of conductive education. Introductory sections provide an overview of conductive education (training motorically disabled children in small, motivating groups of similarly handicapped peers to actively and voluntarily pursue those movements that are both incompatible with reflexes and functional in their self care applications), the definition of special terms, and the detailed description of special equipment. The project's daily calendar serves as the table of contents for the documentation entries that form the remainder of the book. Each activity listed on the calendar is associated with a letter-digit code which directs readers to a section which explains the activity in detail. Activities such as the following are covered: academic instruction, bathing, hand washing, dressing, eating, group games, exercises for the hands and arms, drinking, bedtime activities, exercises for developing gross motor skills, standing, and walking. Where appropriate, descriptions of activities include accompanying verbal instructions, rationale and functional applications for the activity, and adaptations of the activity for individuals.
