This practical manual, written by therapists with extensive experience in the field, provides a user-friendly reference tool for occupational therapists and others working with children who have problems with learning, coordination, speech and language and behaviour.
The book presents a model of a recognized approach from which therapists and others can develop specific techniques within a clinical setting, modifying the programme to meet the needs of the individual child.
The treatment described has been used successfully by teachers and parents as well as by occupational therapists and OT students.
The book includes more than 100 photographs, and the appendices include referral forms, questionnaires, assessment and report form, suggestions for treatment activities, the home treatment programmes, equipment used in treatment, a food challenge handout, and a glossary.
The information in the appendices may be reproduced freely, with acknowledgement.
