This fourth edition continues to focus on the importance of occupation, and all of the frames of reference have been revised to include examples that relate to the importance of occupation and active involvement in a meaningful life. This edition includes three new frames of references, including the STAR frame of reference for working with children with sensory processing disorders, a frame of reference for working with children with anxiety and depression, and a strength-based frame of reference for working with adolescents with autism. A major thrust of this revision was the updating of material in all chapters. Content was overhauled to reflect changes in theory and practice. In addition, all frames of reference have a new section called Supporting Evidence that reflects the importance of research to practice.
As with previous editions, this fourth edition is meant to be an effective tool for teaching pediatrics to entry-level students; however, it can be equally beneficial for therapists who want to enhance the use of theory in their practice and for those who are seeking new and updated approaches to interventions. The book continues to provide pediatric information organized through the structure of frames of reference.
For this edition, we continued to use the language of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF). Incorporation of ICF language broadens the appeal of the book. This language resulted in an emphasis on the importance of the child’s ability to participate in meaningful activities of life (occupations). It is our hope that both new and experienced therapists will use this text to bring new approaches into their practice and update their knowledge of their favorite frames of reference. We hope that practice never becomes habit and is continually updated through the use of current theory.
