Description:

Occupational therapists who work with adults with neurological problems must be able to appropriately and quickly use a variety of screening methods to pinpoint deficit areas and assess how these have impaired the person's daily life function. This comprehensive book compiles the most common occupational therapy screening methods used with adults with neurological conditions. Presented as a step-by-step instruction manual, the book includes copies of all screens and is presented in an easy-to-use format that facilitates its use in the clinic and in home health and community-based settings. It is also an ideal text for students, clearly outlining how to administer neurological screens in occupational therapy practice. Extensive use of photographs enhances the instructions and clearly shows practitioners how to use the various techniques. Book jacket.
