Pediatric Therapy in the 1990s: The Demise of the Educational versus Medical Dichotomy.
McEwen, Irene R.; Shelden, M'Lisa L.
Physical & Occupational Therapy in Pediatrics, v15 n2 p33-45 1995
This article proposes that changes in pediatric therapy in the 1990s have made the dichotomy between educational and medical therapy moot. Contemporary models of motor development and motor learning, combined with an emphasis on functional outcomes and family-centered services, are seen to pertain equally to children receiving occupational and physical therapy in any setting.
