At the heart of Making Play Just Right: Activity Analysis, Creativity, and Playfulness in Pediatric Occupational Therapy, 2nd edition, is the belief that occupational therapists must incorporate play into interventions with children in order to ensure that pediatric occupational therapy is maximally effective. This text provides the background, history, evidence and general knowledge needed to use a playful approach to pediatric occupational therapy, as well as the specific examples and recommendations needed to help therapists adopt these strategies. The authors provide a number of case examples and companion videos to allow the reader to engage in learning activities to improve understanding of the content. -- Publisher.
