Written by three highly experienced authors, this book tackles a range of manual handling strategies from a practical and analytical stance. There are over 50 common moving and handling tasks that form the basis of assisting children to move. The topic areas include 24 hour postural care, moving and handling in personal care, therapy transfers such as into and out of standing frames, horse riding and much more. The activity template gives the reader the opportunity to assess in more detail the handling tasks with the children in their care. It gives an opportunity for discussion and development of more robust strategies that can help the child, families, carers and professionals achieve a better quality of life.

Whether you are the Child being assisted, Parent, Head Teacher, Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Inclusion Coordinator, After School Club Leader, or Therapist, this book will hand you the information you need when you need it most.
