-As a textbook, it is a good read. It is comprehensive and its emphasis on highlighting the evidence base for topics is very welcome. It is clearly set out and very readable with self assessment activities and critical thinking questions that allow the reader to explore and develop their own learning. Overall, this is an exciting textbook which embraces evidence-based practice and encourages the reader to be active in their learning.- - Anna Clampin, Coventry University, British Journal of Occupational Therapy

Since that time, she has edited or authored 9 textbooks targeted specifically at occupational therapy/occupational therapy assistant students' specific needs.
