Abstract:

From traumatic brain injury to dementia, occupational therapists working with adults with neurological difficulties must be able to efficiently use various screening methods to pinpoint deficits and determine how they affect a client's daily functioning. Already a well-used staple in hundreds of occupational therapy clinician's libraries and classrooms, this book guides occupational therapists through the entire screening process in an easy-to-use format. This updated edition provides detailed steps for cognitive, functional visual, perceptual, sensory, motor, cerebellar function, cranial nerve function, neuropathy, peripheral nerve function, and dysphagia screening in addition to a new section on mental status. Each chapter has screening forms that can be printed from the enclosed CD-ROM, and a new detailed case study guides occupational therapy students and clinicians through the evaluation process.
