Occupational Therapy and Adolescents with Disability
Parents of teenagers can chuckle or weep at the all too familiar “episodes” in the lives of teenagers. Consider further what this transitional stage and all its agonies and ecstasies will mean to the adolescent with a chronic disability, to the kind of young person occupational therapists see every day. This book is a comprehensive review of occupational therapy with adolescents who are struggling with severe physical and psychological problems associated with disability. Occupational Therapy and Adolescents With Disability is loaded with practical strategies for working with this population and their parents. It reaffirms the belief of occupational therapy as a caring, humane, and ingenious profession. A diverse selection of topics is covered including self-concept/self-esteem development, autistic adolescents, special injuries in the adolescent years, life/work planning, and special practice issues.
