The Boy Who Could Run But Not Walk by Dr. Karen Pape

The Boy Who Could Run But Not Walk by Karen Pape

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​ for more information on Dr. Pape's work and research.

You can read how a young patient gave neonatologist Karen Pape a fresh insight into neuroplasticity in The Star article "How a boy with cerebral palsy changed a doctor's thinking about the brain" by Karen Pape. Click here to read the full article.
