School-based practice offers both tremendous challenges and rewards to occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants. Challenges include the need to continually update discipline skills, stay current with best practice models of service delivery, and understand the application of federal laws and regulations. Rewards include the satisfaction of contributing to children's learning and development and participating on a professional team that effectively supports children's success in school. This book helps occupational therapy professionals meet the challenges and reap the rewards of school-based practice. This book is essential reading. Chapters are easy to read and well organized, offering resources that help provide efficient, best practice services. Forms and examples help organize data, explain occupational therapy services, document evaluation results for intervention planning, and record a student's progress on educational goals. These resources translate legislative mandates for documentation and reporting into easy-to-use formats and well-explained procedures. This book enables therapists to effectively help students with IEPs learn and function in school and to lead the interdisciplinary teams who plan and provide special education services. --Adapted from the Foreword by Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA Also includes a CD-ROM with 14 sample forms and questionnaires.
