What follows is a book review by The author, Shoshanah Shear, Occupational Therapist.

 

"Healing Your Life Through Activity — An Occupational Therapist's Story" was written following requests from some of my patients and their families.  My patients were frustrated that they had not known anything about occupational therapy sooner, a fact that lead to needless time wasted where they could have been receiving the intervention they needed and deserved.   Ironically — these patients did not come to me of their own accord, neither were they referred to me. I had come across them through an indirect manner, and hearing their story, I realized that what they were in need of — was occupational therapy.  The book was written to educate the layperson and to make them aware of when this profession can be of benefit to them, and when indeed they should ask a doctor to make a positive referral to a qualified occupational therapist.
