Abstract

This article discusses the etiology of pediatric spinal cord injury (SCI) and presents contemporary thoughts on the rehabilitation and habilitation of children with SCI based on emerging evidence. In addition, a brief review of the outcomes of adults with childhood onset SCI is presented as a basis for discussion on the implications on practice. Priorities for both clinical care and research efforts in pediatric SCI are outlined.
