Summary "This book is designed as a companion text for the variety of support workers in the field of rehabilitation. It recognises the diversity of roles and assortment of training and education options: formal routes such as S/NVQ, and schemes which are tailored to an individual workplace. The focus of the book is simply to provide an accessible introduction to rehabilitation through enablement, no matter what discipline or service leads this activity." "Ideal for support workers in all areas of rehabilitation and therapy services, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, podiatry, dietetics, social care and nursing, particularly those studying towards the new Health Awards and for elements of the Care Awards. Enabling Independence will also provide assistance in the field of develomental delay, to promote skill acquisition."--BOOK JACKET.
