Chapter 9: Application of Motor Control/Motor Learning to Practice Chapter 11: Sensory Integration Chapter 12: Visual Perception

By Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Professor, Division of Occupational Therapy, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA This course utilizes text from a hard back textbook by Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Professor, Division of Occupational Therapy, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA “Occupational Therapy for Children” ©2010. “Occupational Therapy for Children” is a market-leading text that takes an evidence-based look at children at various ages and stages in development, comprehensively addressing both conditions and treatment techniques in all settings. The sixth edition of “Occupational Therapy for Children” maintains its focus on children from infancy to adolescence and gives comprehensive coverage of both conditions and treatment techniques in all settings. Inside you'll discover new author contributions, new research and theories, new techniques, and current trends to keep you in step with the changes in pediatric OT practice. This edition provides an even stronger focus on evidence-based practice with the addition of key research notes and explanations of the evidentiary basis for specific interventions.
