Dysfunctions in a child’s nervous system may be caused by numerous factors: genetic, contagious physical, chemical, or environmental. The prevalence of neurodysfunctions in pediatric populations is relatively high, compared to defects of other systems. This is linked to the fact that the development of the specific structures of the nervous system occurs over a relatively long period of time, during which the processes are affected by harmful factors. It may be difficult to accurately identify the cause, even in half of the children affected by the condition. The dysfunctions of the nervous system may have an impact on locomotion, somatic growth, and cognitive and social development. Therefore, children and adolescents with neurodysfunctions require continuous, comprehensive rehabilitation, covering not only motor functions but also mental and social ones. We invite the submission of original research manuscripts as well as review articles and case studies that address somatic, motor, and cognitive development disorders in children and also those that address neurorehabilitation in children with neurodysfunctions.
We look forward to receiving your submissions for this Special Issue.
