Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I found the definitions in the dictionary to be clearly written and easily understood. Overall the material is pertinent and concise, encompassing a wide variety of areas that occupational therapists deal with daily. I believe that this publication is a useful basic reference book for any therapist or student to own."  

 — Bev Franchuk, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy

Quick Reference Dictionary for Occupational Therapy is certainly a helpful and valuable resource for all occupational therapy students and entry-level practitioners.  Many will find it useful for the sole purpose of its comprehensive dictionary, while others will find the commonly used documents (e.g., stages, classifications, guidelines) most helpful to have on hand…This book provides a good reference for questions that arise during academics and throughout practice.  This is an essential reference for all occupational therapy students.”

- Rosanne DiZazzo-Miller, DrOT, OTRL, CDP, Department of Health Sciences, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, Activities, Adaptation, and Aging

Lauren Goldbaum
This convenient resource, specifically designed for occupational therapists and occupational therapy students, contains a comprehensive dictionary of terms and concepts and a variety of appendixes. The purpose is to help occupational therapists become as knowledgeable and competent as possible in the changing healthcare environment by providing an accessible resource with the latest information gathered from several textbooks. This book is needed because it provides an abundance of pertinent information that is easy to carry and use every day. The book can especially be useful to occupational therapy students, entry-level therapists, and for experienced therapists working in a new setting. This book can also be a valuable resource when studying for the certification exam. All occupational therapists can use this book for current information and resources. One of the most important features of this book is that it is small enough to be easily carried in a lab coat or purse. The organization of the book and clear table of contents allow the reader to quickly access information. Creative illustrations provide the reader with a good understanding of types of splints, range of motion, and basic signing for communication with people with hearing impairments. This is a valuable resource that combines useful, current information from a variety of textbooks into a handy pocketsize book. Occupational therapists working in all settings can benefit from the latest terminology, resources, and information in this book. It is especially useful to students during fieldwork affiliations and for new therapists. University bookstores should definitely stock it.

Dr. Jacobs’ research examines the interface between the environment and human capabilities.

She practiced as the rehabilitation coordinator/manager at Maples Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Wrentham, MA for the past 8 years and continues to work for Therapy Resources Management.
