Another major change in this new edition is the incorporation of the language, terminology, and organization of the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework. Other improvements include a matrix of all assessments, showing content areas and age ranges of each instrument. Most exciting is the accompanying searchable CD-ROM, which offers readers quick, easy access to the entire text. -- Publisher's website
