Mosby, 2000 - Medical - 391 pages
Designed as both a practical clinical reference and a comprehensive classroom text, this unparalleled new resource meets the need of OTA programs for a focused, easy-to-use approach to pediatrics. An introductory section covers the scope of practice, then addresses the medical, educational, and family systems. Subsequent sections provide in-depth coverage of normal development, pediatric health conditions, and treatment planning. A wide range of helpful pedagogy reinforces learning and enhances retention: chapter objectives, review questions, clinical pearls, learning activities, resource lists, bulleted/boxed key concepts, and boxed descriptions of therapeutic activities.
