Review:

"This book strive to support rehabilitation staff who need  practical information about AT, with emphasis on implementing effective systems for consumers in clinical and community settings to facilitate increased independence in activities of daily living...There is a good balance of theory and practice, and for those who wish to focus on theory, the theory  has been separated in the text to make it easier to focus on...It is well referenced, with links to aid further research, if required. The reader can also register on-line to the 'Evolve' website to add to the learning experience, with free study tools."

Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy, April 2012
