    A very famous Podiatrist and paediatric whiz from Adelaide is writing one at the moment. In the meantime, attached are two chapters from the manual we use with the undergrads that probably have what you want.

    a peads textbook i have found useful for normal milestones and comparisons for the child with cp is atext or at least it was a book used for a 5 day workshop i did probably 10 years ago .
    its called treating children with neuromuscular dysfunction by Beverley Cusack .
    She a PT from canada.The book is very Root orientated in its theory on biomechanics...but the early chapters go thru sitting .crawling walking their normal stages and the adnormal stages assoc with cp. not sure where you would find this book????/
    If still interested you could email me and perhaps i could scan in and email revalent parts????/

    sorry i got the titile of this book wrong in the previous thread
    The correct title is
    Progressive casting and splinting for lower extremity deformities in children with neuromotor dysfunction.
    by Beverlley Cusick MS PT
    the section that discusses milestones sitting crawling walking techniques normal...abnormal function and development indications is in chapter 2 pgs 19 to 102

    Is anyone keen on "Introduction to Podopaediatrics" (Thompson and Volpe, eds).. I liked it when I was at uni for podopaediatric stuff in general (I've not used it for looking up developmental milestones etc though, because I had the LaTrobe notes for that). Pondering acquiring it for work purposes now I'm out in the "real world".

    Ely, it's OK but very basic. It's a good reference book and I tend to have it on the shelf for students.

    I just find Google my best friend. Nothing I can't find there and free too!

    Ah yes I've seen this one and been put off by the UK price for obvious reasons.

    Thanks for your speedy response.

    I have the textbook by Angela Evans and think it's great. I don't know why the price is so high on Amazon, it wasn't that high when I bought it!

    Think its because its out of print

    I thought the price was barmy as well; would anybody seriously pay that amount for a small book (as good as it is)?

    I threw my Subotnick Sports Medicine of the Lower Extremity into the search box, and Anthonys Manufacture and use of the Functional Foot Orthosis as well, both had ridiculous purchasing costs.
