Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a pocket sized text, this is an ideal quick and easy reference book. Containing details of a wide range of conditions and disorders, it is easy to find relevant brief details on many of the conditions that a practitioner would expect to come across within their practice-as well as a few of the more obscure-and it includes a good range of information concerning physical as well as learning disabilities." International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, April 2009, Vol 16, No 4

"Overall I found this book to be an excellent resource for occupational therapists of various experience levels, from students to the more experienced therapists. It is definitely a reference book which should be available in all paediatric occupational therapy departments, as it provides fast, up to date, pertinent and succinct information on all conditions encountered in the practice of paediatric Occupational Therapy." The Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy, Summer 2009, Volume 37 (1)
