Therapy Care

by Jim Smiley, Tomoaki Asano, and Michiyo Masui

A4; 92pp

ISBN: 978-4939130-63-2

OLS (Online Learning Support) Available 

Therapy Care introduces mid- to high-elementary level students to the basics of occupational and physical therapy. Students experience useful communicative English that they can use in their future careers as therapists with English speaking patients.

Many first and second year students of therapy do not yet have a full command of their subject. They acquire this information in the later years of their study. Therapy Care understands this and does not demand highly detailed or technical output from students. Rather, the language practice is geared simultaneously towards building up from the base of that subject knowledge and towards dealing with English that helps them develop language skills in a practical manner.

Therapy Care comprises twelve units which cover a wide range of topics of direct interest to both future physical and occupational therapists. These include the decision to become a therapist, dealing with sports injuries, activities of daily living, and issues in elderly care.

This book is accompanied by a subscription-based Online Learning Support package, with copious activities for extra practice for learners.
