193 pages




This text shows occupational therapy students how to analyze activities using the components described in the activity demands section of the second edition of the author's text, Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process. Thomas (occupational therapy, Loma Linda University) treats activity analysis from an activity-demand perspective. Chapters are presented in sequential order, step-by-step through the phases of analyzing an activity. The first part of the text explains what activity analysis is and what it measures, then provides chapters on sequence and timing, objects and space and social demands, required body functions and body structures, and required actions and performance skills. The second part of the text contains two chapters devoted to the client and grading and adapting in occupation-based activity analysis. The text is illustrated with b&w photos and includes case examples, exercises, and many sample forms. An appendix offers blank forms and activities and examples of completed forms. A web site offers instructor resources, including lecture slides for each chapter.
