Book Description :

Occupational Therapy with Children draws on contemporary research to examine children’s roles, their occupations and the skills which underpin their ability to participate in society. The book will develop the occupational therapist’s understanding of how to optimise the participation of children in the various environments in which they are required or choose to engage. Occupational Therapy with Children maintains a developmental perspective and incorporates child-centred interventions to improve performance deficits. Section one examines children’s roles and occupations in contemporary society at a broad level. Coverage includes the child’s participation in the family, at school and in the community. This section considers environmental influences on childhood activities, and highlights children’s changing occupational time use and the impact this has on health and wellbeing. Section two focuses on childhood as a period of significant development and skill acquisition. This is profiled as a dynamic period for the therapist to encourage occupational mastery across the spectrum of childhood experience: in play; in self-care; as a student; and beyond the school grounds. Topical chapters evaluate participation in physical activity and consider the potential for ‘healthy’ leisure, along with the risk characteristics associated with certain approaches to leisure. Occupational Therapy with Children is aimed at students and practitioners of occupational therapy. Other childhood professionals, particularly early childhood educators, will also appreciate the articulate approach this book takes towards the development of the child. Highly illustrated with contemporary photographs, drawings and succinct tables Includes case studies; providing worked examples of therapeutic applications Draws on the World Health Organisation International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to frame the concept of children’s occupations and societal participation Responsive to developments in occupational science Expert contributors provide international perspectives From the Foreword by Professor Charles Christiansen, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston [Occupational therapists] will find that this book provides a framework that makes planning effective therapy with children practical, relevant, and effective . . . [Rodger & Ziviani’s] contribution to the literature has helped unleash the genie of occupation in the service of improved therapy with children.

"The strengths of this text include its comprehensiveness, its overall organization, and the study aids included in each chapter. The book lays the foundation for occupational therapy practice and identifies the broad knowledge base required for this endeavor. Building on this foundation, the book progresses logically from assessment through intervention with specific foci on postural control, hand function, visual perception, psychosocial and emotional development, feeding and oral motor skills, self-care and adaptation for independent living, play, handwriting, augmentative communication and computer access, and mobility. Specific strengths in content that merit emphases are the attention to the psychosocial development and needs of children, the use of technology to increase function, the importance of families and others in the child's system through the continuing process of adaptation, and the legislation that is relevant to children with disabilities and their families."

Book Description :

While paediatric healthcare professionals view play as the treatment tool of choice for children under school age, the theory and practice underpinning play-based therapeutic approaches often remain less clear to individual practitioners. Paediatric intervention approaches are increasingly being questioned, and individual practitioners constantly asked to provide evidence-based practice. In response, a more coherent understanding and fresh discussion on children's play and utilisation of play for therapeutic purposes is needed, especially as societal expectations and lifestyles change. Play as Therapy provides background theory and practical applications of original research on play assessment and interventions used in therapy. The book offers a solid foundation for identifying and assessing play dysfunction, understanding play in different cultural contexts and considerations when intervening with play. The practical approach is underpinned by theory, research and case vignettes to explain how to utilise play as therapy with challenging children.

Book Description :

Professor Ferland offers The Ludic Model as a method of occupational therapy for physically restricted children. Play is approached in terms of attitude and not simply as an activity. It is understood as a privileged path by which children can be encouraged towards holistic development, while discovering pleasure through their own capacity to act. This book is based on a key concern that children with disabilities be seen as children first and foremost. The model presented is equally applicable to a home or therapeutic setting and strives not only to encourage optimal autonomy, but also to facilitate a satisfying quality of life for the whole family.

Book Description :

HANDS AT PLAY is a fine motor skills handbook for parents and those working with young children. In this beautiful publication, occupational therapist Suzanne Wilkinson offers parents and early childhood educators ideas and activities to help children develop their hand skills. Clear photos, complemented by simple and informative text, provide readers with a practical and valuable resource. From the opening and closing finger movement of the newborn baby, humans develop the ability to use their hands in intricate and complex ways. Most children naturally develop hand dexterity through everyday play activities. For others, however, fine motor tasks can be challenging and frustrating and some youngsters may not readily develop the competence and confidence in hand skills necessary for school readiness. HANDS AT PLAY makes fine motor activities fun and rewarding and will help children develop the hand dexterity and strength needed for independence and play.

Book Description :

Children play less than ever before, yet more is expected of them at earlier and earlier ages. With a growing societal distrust of play, some caregivers have deemed play as less important than rote learning, structured activities and worksheets. What about creativity, curiosity, problem solving, flexible thinking, initiative, grit, adaptability, empathy, being able to negotiate and collaborate with others, leadership... are these skills also less important? Play is essential for development, foundational to learning and vital to a child's wellbeing. There is a need to support caregivers and children towards more playful engagement in today's ever changing fast paced world. This book is for the caregiver who seeks a deeper understanding of how to nurture play and how to create an environment that supports playful engagement. This book aims to empower you, as a caregiver, to understand the difference between play and non-play and to reflect on factors impacting your child's play. It also includes how-to strategies to set you on a more playful path.

Book Description :

"Angela Hanscom is a powerful voice for balance." —Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods In this important book, a pediatric occupational therapist and founder of TimberNook shows how outdoor play and unstructured freedom of movement are vital for children’s cognitive development and growth, and offers tons of fun, engaging ways to help ensure that kids grow into healthy, balanced, and resilient adults. Today’s kids have adopted sedentary lifestyles filled with television, video games, and computer screens. But more and more, studies show that children need “rough and tumble” outdoor play in order to develop their sensory, motor, and executive functions. Disturbingly, a lack of movement has been shown to lead to a number of health and cognitive difficulties, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), emotion regulation and sensory processing issues, and aggressiveness at school recess break. So, how can you ensure your child is fully engaging their body, mind, and all of their senses? Using the same philosophy that lies at the heart of her popular TimberNook program—that nature is the ultimate sensory experience, and that psychological and physical health improves for children when they spend time outside on a regular basis—author Angela Hanscom offers several strategies to help your child thrive, even if you live in an urban environment. Today it is rare to find children rolling down hills, climbing trees, or spinning in circles just for fun. We’ve taken away merry-go-rounds, shortened the length of swings, and done away with teeter-totters to keep children safe. Children have fewer opportunities for unstructured outdoor play than ever before, and recess times at school are shrinking due to demanding educational environments. With this book, you’ll discover little things you can do anytime, anywhere to help your kids achieve the movement they need to be happy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
