Abstract:

Keep your pediatric clients actively engaged in their therapy session with 1001 Pediatric Treatment Activities: Creative Ideas for Therapy Sessions. Written for pediatric occupational therapy and physical therapy clinicians, graduate students, pediatric academic courses, and those in fieldwork and internships, this user-friendly guide will provide you with new ideas and activities designed to enhance your treatment session while maintaining your client's attention and interest.

1001 Pediatric Treatment Activities was written with the intent to be used among a wide range of populations and pediatric settings. Specifically, these settings include a pediatric clinic, school-based setting, hospital, and home-based therapy. This quick and simple reference is organized and written in a way that enables the user to quickly open it and skim a chapter for new treatment ideas. More than 350 photographs are included to supplement treatment activities that require further explanation. The durable spiral binding allows the book to lay flat in times when space is limited, such as in the classroom or clinic.

1001 Pediatric Treatment Activities covers treatment areas that are typically addressed in pediatric therapy.

-Body Strengthening and Stabilizing.

-Cognitive and Higher-Level Skill Building.

1001 Pediatric Treatment Activities by Ayelet Danto and Michelle Pruzansky offers therapists and students a comprehensive mix of easy-to-use therapeutic activities that they may not know exist or have not thought about including in their practice. Therapists can quickly find ideas for specific impairments and design creative and resourceful treatment sessions using the activities provided.

When working with children for extended periods of time in the same environment, it can be challenging to find and develop new and exciting treatment activities. This unique resource offers more than a thousand ideas all in one place. 1001 Pediatric Treatment Activities will quickly prove to be invaluable to any new or experienced pediatric therapist looking for new ideas for a therapy session. --Book Jacket.
