I love this book for many reasons. It's very clear, well organized and presents information from research summaries, clear rationales to share with parents and lots of user friendly practical therapy tips. I find the best way to use this book is to think of your particular client you have in mind, know their present level of success and struggle, then find the rational in the research section, then pick an activity that fits with the client's ability level and goals. Thank you for having this fabulous therapeutic book available! I give it the highest rating of 5/5 stars, I tell every graduate student and therapist that this should be a most have book in their inventory of essential materials. Ann Dorais, M.A. CCC-SLP
