  • This book draws on contemporary occupational therapy theory and research to provide occupational therapy students and clinicians with a practical resource on implementing occupation centred practice with children. Each chapter has specific objectives and uses case studies to demonstrate the clinical realities and applications of each of the topics addressed. Best practice guidelines are provided along with a summary of recommendations drawn from the relevant theories, occupational therapy philosophy and existing research. The book aims specifically to be practice based.
