Overview

The Third Edition of Frames of Reference for Pediatric Occupational Therapy provides an exceptional foundation of theory and practical tools that will serve as the basis of pediatric occupational therapy practice. The focus of the text is on frames of reference, which offer effective blueprints for applying theoretical information to help pediatric clients lead richer, fuller lives.

The Third Edition features updates of all theories and their practical application, with an emphasis on occupation and participation in life. Coverage includes three new frames of reference to enhance teaching-learning, childhood occupations, and social participation.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

No other text provides such comprehensive information about pediatric practice for the occupational therapy student and practitioner. Organized by nine frames of reference, it provides a method of combining theory and practice that makes theoretical material clearly relevant to function, thus helping the reader to conceptualize and initiate intervention. New to this edition are two additional frames of reference, four new case studies, and numerous illustrations and photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Rachel Diamant
This is a comprehensive text with a description of the nine frames of reference most frequently used in pediatric occupational therapy. Originally published in 1993, this updated text presents a definition of each frame of reference from a theoretical viewpoint, and a description of how to identify problems and effect remediation based each frame. In addition, the use of frames of reference is addressed in the context of daily life activities to promote optimal functioning in home, school, and community. The purpose is to present frames of reference in a structured format to assist occupational therapists in assessment, in development of intervention strategies, and in designing therapeutic programs to improve the functional performance of children. This text is primarily written for entry level occupational therapy students and post professional students for use in courses that are designed for the instruction of pediatric evaluation, intervention, and theories. The text is also useful for occupational therapists who wish to enter into the area of pediatric practice from other areas of practice. Occupational therapists who currently work in the area of pediatrics will find this text useful in updating their knowledge of application of theory into practice. The text covers nine current frames of reference frequently used in the practice area of pediatric occupational therapy. Several of the more well-known theories are described, such as the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Frame of Reference, Biomechanical Frame of Reference, and Sensory Integration Frame of Reference, as well as newer ones, such as Motor Skill Acquisition Frame of Reference, and Occupational Frame of Reference. Thetheory development of each frame of reference is clearly discussed, as well as descriptions of function and dysfunction according to each frame of reference, assessment strategies, principles of intervention, integration of activities, and applications into practice. The authors employ photographs and tables to illustrate and structure concepts. The final five chapters are case studies that demonstrate practical application of frames of reference. In addition, the authors emphasize through the case studies that several frames of reference can be used concurrently with the same child, therefore providing more comprehensive therapeutic programming. This second edition provides clear and concise descriptions of current theory, and practical applications of theory for use in therapeutic programming for children. This text is unique in that it illustrates how to use theories as an assessment guideline to determine a child's functional skill capacity, instead of only viewing the child from their diagnosis and deficits. This text would then be a welcome adjunct to texts that describe developmental disabilities. The only other text that provides information about theories and frame of reference is Case-Smith's Occupational Therapy for Children, 3rd Edition (Mosby-Year Book, Inc., 1996). With changes in healthcare delivery and with public laws regarding occupational therapy service provision in early intervention programs and in school systems, it is paramount that occupational therapists remain up-to-date in their understanding of theoretical rationale, accurate problem identification, and in problem remediation.
Booknews
Provides essential knowledge in pediatric practice in occupational therapy, organized through the structure of frames of reference rather than diagnostic categories. Section I presents chapters on foundations, and Section II presents frames of reference, with material on areas such as neurodevelopmental treatment, sensory integration, and motor skills acquisition. Each frame of reference delineates theoretical information, defines essential terms, and contains information necessary for the therapist to move from theory to practice. This second edition contains three new frames of reference, and four new case studies. For entry-level occupational therapy students. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
