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.

Therapists can quickly find ideas for specific impairments and design creative and resourceful treatment sessions using the activities provided.

Each chapter includes:
· A brief description explaining the treatment topic
· An explanation of why a particular skill is important
· A list of compensatory strategies that may be employed by the therapist to assist the child who is deficient in a particular skill
· A list of treatment ideas and activities in which to engage, in order to work on the specific treatment goal
· Examples of commercial products that can be used to address the treatment goal

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.
