This text is a valuable resource for directing the clinical reasoning of occupational therapy assistant students as they prepare to provide services to children and adolescents. Divided into 4 sections, this text explains best- practice occupational therapy services based on knowledge about occupations, occupation based and non-occupation based conceptual models, and the occupational development of children and adolescents. Through the use of multiple vignettes and case studies, the occupational therapy assistant students learn how to implement interventions for children and adolescents who are experiencing specific health and learning challenges. Reflection and application questions at the end of each chapter reinforce text content.
