This book is of equal interest to physicians, surgeons, therapists and educators of children with special needs. The emerging field of neuroplasticity is well grounded in hard science. The problem for health care providers is that much of this new knowledge contradicts what we were taught in school and by our peers. This is the nature of scientific revolutions, and this is a revolution in how we approach the rehabilitation of damage to the brain, spinal cord and/or peripheral nerves. Dr. Doidge has made this knowledge accessible for busy clinicians and we are all in his debt.
So many families have been told that brain damage is permanent and irreversible. They have been encouraged to accept reality and get on with life. Neuroplasticity research now demonstrates that change and improvement is possible throughout life. The young have even more possibility as their brains are still actively growing.
