"Overall I found this book to be an excellent resource for occupational therapists of various experience levels, from students to the more experienced therapists. It is definitely a reference book which should be available in all paediatric occupational therapy departments, as it provides fast, up to date, pertinent and succinct information on all conditions encountered in the practice of paediatric Occupational Therapy."
