MODC's Conductive Education program is based on neuroplasticity - the idea that the brain can change and adapt - so we're very excited to be supporting the launch of Dr. Karen Pape's new book, The Boy Who Could Run But Not Walk
The book is a clear, accessible examination of the science behind neuroplasticity, and its implications for the baby brain. Dr. Pape's research challenges the traditional wisdom that governs pediatric rehabilitation, and the belief that cerebral palsy cannot be cured.
The Boy Who Could Run But Not Walk will be officially launched at Ben McNally Books in Toronto on September 22. Please visit www.karenpapemd.com
for more information on Dr. Pape's work and research.
