5.0 out of 5 stars A must for occupational therapy practitioners... August 20, 2007
By Derek
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Here it is. The latest update for physical disability science within occupational therapy. Whether you are a current student in need of another source, or an experienced practitioner with a desire to go back and check the basics. This updated book will have more than one topic to get you up to speed. I love it, and frequently reference it. It's also nice to know that added emphasis is placed on realistic case studys throughout the book.
Enjoy!!

Derek

5.0 out of 5 stars Pedretti February 27, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Great Text - informative and easy to read!!! My only complaint is that it's not available as an eBook. It's huge and doesn't transport easily. I'd love to be able to take it with me so that I could reference/read as I need to!

This book allows you to get a good visual understanding on how physical dysfunction is effected by injury in the brain. It is a great compliment reading to my neuro text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Helpful! February 8, 2014
By October
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wow, this book has it all. Allen's Cognitive Levels, RLAS Scale, GCS Scale, and all kinds of helpful stuff. You could probably find anything you needed in here as far as OT goes... ROM measurements, tx approaches, everything! I've only cracked the surface of it and I can tell this book will help you on the exams better than any of the others.

I received the book, just as described. It is a big book, over 1000 pages, and very heavy. It is full of good information though.

This book almost singlehandedly got me through OT school. It's got everything you'll need to know to become an effective and ethical therapist (or in my case, therapist assistant). Read more
