Cerebral Palsy in the 21st Century: Is there anything left to say?
Rosenbaum, P. (2009). Cerebral Palsy in the 21st Century: Is there anything left to say?. Neuropediatrics: Journal of pediatric neurobiology, neurology and neurosurgery,40(2), 56-60. Germany: Georg Thieme Verlag. Retrieved from https://doi.org/10.1055/s-0029-1234104
In April 2009 I was honoured to be asked to present the Emil Becker Lecture at the 35th annual meeting of the German-Swiss-Austrian Society for Neuropaediatrics (Gesellschaft für Neuropädiatrie). Focusing on my interest and involvement as a clinician and researcher in cerebral palsy, I took the opportunity to look both back at the past 35 years and forward to what I believe are some of the important clinical challenges that are still to be addressed and solved in the 21st century. This paper is therefore a personal reflection rather than a comprehensive review of the literature in cerebral palsy. It is my hope that these reflections will be of interest to others.
