Overview

The second edition of this successful textbook provides the occupational therapy student with descriptions of perceptual and cognitive abilities, supported by theoretical models. Experienced clinicians will find more in-depth assessment of perceptual and cognitive deficits for their neurologically-impaired clients, based on an understanding of the underlying mechanisms. The text has been updated throughout to reflect the growth of cognitive rehabilitation within occupational therapy.

Part I is an introduction to the methods of cognitive neuropsychology and to the components of the complex cognitive system. Part II outlines the theoretical background to the individual cognitive abilities and includes a new chapter on executive functions. Part III addresses assessment methodologies, both functional and standardized. The latest standardized assessments of perception and cognition have been included.

Written in a clear and user-friendly style, this book will give students and clinicians of occupational therapy an awareness of how perception and cognition affect function in self-care, work and leisure activities, and will help them to predict the effects of impairment.
