Abstract:In Italy, paediatric rehabilitation is part of the activity of services for neurological and psychiatric diseases in childhood and adolescence. These services (UONPIA) have an integrated, multi-professional, child- and family-oriented approach to paediatric disabling conditions. At present, inadequate territorial distribution of services, shortage of resources and need of epidemiological monitoring and specific designs of bio-medical research are the main problems.
