From the Publisher
“This is a very well researched and referenced text that effectively integrates the author’s many years of experience with research evidence. It provides the student and practicing clinician with many helpful resources, including specific standardized assessments, occupationally based assessments and dynamic assessments as well as additional references to consult for further reading. As each chapter addresses a particular set of deficits and skills, clinicians can also quickly refer to specific chapters of interest as questions arise in their practices.”
— Mary Kita, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
"This book is affordable, and although aimed at occupational therapists, it would be useful for physiotherapists specializing in neurological rehabilitation, and health professionals who wish to understand more about visual, perceptual and cognitive functioning."
— Margaret J. Mayston, Physiotherapy
"The strength of the book lies in the chapters relating to cognitive-perceptual functions, most of which provide sufficient (but not overwhelming) background material on the function, highly detailed descriptions of evaluation methods, and moderately thorough reviews of treatment interventions. The best discussions relate to evaluation and assessment measures, each of which is a highly detailed set of guidelines that clinicians can readily follow in their patient care activities. This is a useful book for practicing clinicians and students in rehabilitation therapy disciplines, providing the appropriate theoretical and scientific support for certain clinical activities, but mostly providing extensive, detailed, and easy-to-follow guidelines on clinical assessment techniques for patients with cognitive, perceptual, and visual dysfunction. There are several new clinical techniques discussed in this edition that were not included in prior version."
