About the Book
Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health is the first and only text tailored specifically for students seeking a structured foundation of knowledge of tests and related assessment practices commonly used by health professionals in their various fields. While other textbooks commonly used in this area of study often offer a broader and more sweeping look at assessment practices and theories, Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health focuses closely on the standardized and clinical methods of health assessment in regards to rehabilitation counseling, communication and speech disorders, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, physiotherapy, and physical medicine.

Each chapter is structured using the common framework provided by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Disability, Functioning and Health (ICF). This framework, which is considered the gold standard by numerous health institutions around the world in regards to concepts and practices in rehabilitation and health, allows students to gain knowledge and learn practices that are consistent with this widely accepted and highly regarded ICF model.

These chapters not only follow this framework, but are also all organized to include the following topics: professional and legal definitions and theories that form the foundation for assessment methods; a brief history of the research and practice methods pertinent to each chapter topic; a listing of assessment methods commonly used in rehabilitation and health related practices; and a discussion of cultural, legislative, and professional issues that impact the use of the specific assessment methods.
