Dressing Techniques for Children Who Have Cerebral Palsy.
Klein, Marsha Dunn
This pamphlet offers general rules and specific suggestions for people who are dressing children with cerebral palsy. Common dressing problems are examined, such as the child becoming stiff, crossing the legs, or curling the toes, and possible solutions are outlined step-by-step and accompanied by illustrations. Guidelines are also provided for teaching children to dress and undress independently. The pamphlet concludes with factors to consider when selecting clothing styles and fabrics, and techniques for modifying fasteners such as zippers, buckles, and buttons. (JDD)
