Overview


This exciting book provides entry-level users in rehabilitation disciplines such as occupational therapy and physical therapy with an overview of normative life tasks and roles across the lifespan. In addition, it considers the impact of disease and disability on these normative roles. Written by an occupational therapist and a physical therapist, this comprehensive book has many chapters by leading experts in human development, giving users cutting-edge information and a wide range of perspectives. It integrates information from the World Health Organization's International Classification of Function and Disability (ICF) with a developmental life-task perspective, giving those new to the disciplines as well as individuals who have been in professional practice an essential, contemporary frame of reference. With an attractive two-color interior design and rich visuals, this engaging new book integrates information from a number of core disciplines to permit easy understanding of the newer concepts of function and disability.

    I like the way this book is laid out. Its very easy to follow from prenatal to geriatric and very detailed with what to expect at what ages. I would recommend this to anyone interested in development.
