    Abstract

    Prosthesis, training and rehabilitation of children amputees take shorter and are made easier, by paying the normal motor development circuits attention. The success of rehabilitation increases with the participation of the patient and the family.

    In physiotherapy-rehabilitation, the goal is to track the normal development of the child, to minimize the functional disabilities, to support the use of prosthetics and to provide the motivation for social activities.
    Amputation rehabilitation is a long and difficult process. When the amputee is a child, the situation is even more complicated. The rehabilitation program should be planned according to the child. In particular, the disappearence of the child's body image, the obligation to continue to live later as an amputee, the problems in coping with the difficulties, the effects of this situation in the child, family and social environment should be taken into consideration while planning a rehabilitation program.

    Functional evaluation of the child amputee is extremely important for rehabilitation success. The fact that the measurement methods used are specific to children's amputees is valuable for demonstrating the effectiveness of prosthesis and rehabilitation.

    Regardless of the level and the cause, amputation is a situation that requires unique rehabilitation. It is especially necessary for the children who were amputated at a very young age or was born without an extremity, to recieve prosthesis and prosthesis training, to be directed to sports or recreational activities and to determine how functional it can be with prosthesis at an early stage.
