19 Scopus citations


We have made landmark strides over the past fifteen years in the medical management of infants and young children with spina bifida. Educational mainstreaming is national policy, and barrier-free physical environments are increasingly more common. Now we must direct our attention to the broader health and social needs of youth with spina bifida and their families, particularly in the areas of professional support and sexual and vocational counseling.
