Resources from the Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists
The Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists (APCP) is one of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy's largest professional networks and aims to support paediatric physiotherapists to deliver evidence-based care so children and young people can achieve their potential.
APCP has produced a number of information leaflets on a range of conditions and topics commonly referred to children's physiotherapy for advice and support. The leaflets have been written by qualified paediatric physiotherapists after an initial review of literature and where there is a lack of evidence, a consensus of expert opinion is agreed, correct at the time of publication.
These leaflets are freely available and intended for distribution to parents and carers. APCP is therefore happy for any physiotherapist or other healthcare professional or organisation to download and print these leaflets for distribution in clinical practice. APCP also allows uploading of these leaflets to other website servers to facilitate distribution to families.
