Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It effectively provides new therapists with ideas around intervention approaches for occupational performance issues encountered across the lifespan, covering areas relevant across the continuum of care. Meriano and Latella successfully demonstrate the link between theory and practice through case studies that effectively demonstrate application of principles of intervention. As the intervention techniques provided throughout the book are set at a basic level, this text would best suit undergraduate students or new graduate therapists." - Danielle Sansonetti, OT Australia Victoria

    excellent source to read

    the book is an excellent source for occupational therapy assistant students which need some help in interventions using the OTPF. The content is very easy to understand and I have shared this book with some of my classmates. I have used this book in my fieldwork and do insist everyone buy it and have a great career.
