Nearly 20% of occupational therapy practitioners work in school settings, requiring current, effective, and evidence-based best practices for students. Reflecting the extensiveness of occupational therapy practice in schools, the second edition of this bestseller contains best practices from preschool to postsecondary transitions, from ADLs to driving. The latest edition of Best Practices for Occupational Therapy in Schools promotes best school practices, education, research, and policy and provides school occupational therapy practitioners with current, effective information to use in their daily practices. This comprehensive text details working with multiple student populations, transition planning, assistive technology, enhancing student participation, and work readiness. Appendixes provide resources for educators using the text in the classroom, documentation, assessment tools, liability issues, and templates for the occupational profile and occupational therapy intervention plan.
