Review:

This is a very good reference on a very specific topic. Although concise, the book is comprehensive enough to be useful to instructors, therapists, and students.”  Terry Peralta, MA, PhD Candidate, Doody Enterprises, Inc.

I would consider this book a valuable resource for both occupational therapy students and practicing therapists The tables that compare the different names and the use of photographs to clearly show the specific grasps are excellent.” Jane Henry, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy.

"This is an informative text that would assist both clinicians and students to gain a broader and deeper perspective of developmental/functional grasps. I know of no other text to be so comprehensive and specifically detailed."  

— Susan Amundson, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, O.T.KIDS, INC., Spokane, WA

 "No other text covers this information in a comprehensive way."  

— Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio

"Developmental and Functional Hand Grasps is the most valuable book on this topic published in recent years. I found it to be an exciting but easy read, with logical organization, comprehensive inclusion of theoretical approaches, and exactly the right kinds of photos and drawings."  

— Rhoda P. Erhardt, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, Erhardt Developmental Products
