Chapters are dedicated to the ten most important assessments, including the Kohlman Evaluation of Daily Living Skills, the Cognitive Adaptive Skills Evaluation, and the Role Checklist. This detailed text also addresses computerized assessments, as well as research concepts used in the development of assessments.This book is a thorough, scholarly work from contributors recognized for advancing the occupational therapy profession.
