The result of more than two decades of research and practice, The Endless Web presents in clear, readable language a comprehensive guide to understanding and working effectively with the myofascial system, the 'packing material' of the body. Myofascia is a flexible network of tissue that surrounds, cushions, and supports muscles, bones, and organs. It also acts as a riverbed containing the flow of interstitial fluid, and is a critical influence on the immune and hormonal systems. In daily life, this connective tissue is an underlying determinant of movement quality, modd, alertness, and general well-being. The Endless Web is a fully illustrated guide to understanding how myofascia works, it supportive role within the body's anatomy, and how gentle manipulation of the myofascial tissue is central to lasting therapeutic intervention and how it can be integrated into any bodywork practice.

|Handwriting for Heroes: Learn to Write with Your Non-Dominant Hand in Six Weeks. 3rd Ed.
Lowest new price: $17.99
Lowest used price: $14.98
List price: $24.95
Author: Kathleen E. Yancosek
By targeting adults, this book preserves the dignity of those who must "re-learn" the basics of handwriting by providing an alternative to children's workbooks. All tasks are oriented to the adult learner. Cursive writing is easier than printing from motor and perceptual standpoints. Learning cursive writing also diminishes the challenge of having even spaces between printed letters. However,many have requested that the 3rd edition include instructions and visual demonstrations on PRINT writing. We have answered your request! Handwriting for Heroes is a task-oriented workbook that approaches learning to write with your previously non-dominant hand through meaningful repetitions of purposeful writing tasks. Handwriting for Heroes captures the extra-ordinary learning process of a very ordinary task: handwriting. The methods of instruction are based on motor learning principles and the dynamic process of skill acquisition. This is a first-of-its-kind workbook designed for adult populations who sustain injuries to their dominant hands that permanently impair dexterity functions. Learning to write with the previously non-dominant hand can be a rewarding accomplishment along the recovery path; it is an accomplishment that leads to improved self-esteem, increased opportunities for hobbies and work occupations, and one more illustration of the adult s ability to overcome adversity.
Occupational Therapists Acclaim for the Handwriting for Heroes Method
"I used Handwriting for Heroes with all of my patients, some had lost hand function from amputation, brachial plexus injuries, stroke, or extensive soft tissue trauma to the dominant hand. All of my patients benefited and enjoyed the workbook and how it helped them return to handwriting tasks." Stephanie E. Daugherty, MS, OTR/L, CHT, Army Lt. Col. (Ret.)
"This workbook is extremely practical and functional! It is an essential tool in hand dominance retraining for the upper limb amputee." Oren S. Ganz, MOT, OTR/L
"Handwriting for Heroes is more than a workbook! It s an investment into the future performance of my patients who need to return to occupations that demand handwriting. My patients enjoy the challenge and the success of the program!" -Kristi A. Say, OTR/L

|Life Span Motor Development With Web Resource-5th Edition
Lowest new price: $34.99
Lowest used price: $25.18
List price: $99.00
Author: Kathleen Haywood
Brand: Human Kinetics
Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, is the only introductory textbook to use the model of constraints (or dynamical systems) approach in discussing reasons for changes in movement throughout the life span. This fully updated edition encourages students to observe and examine how the interactions of the individual, environment, and task affect changes in a person's movements. The principles of motor development are presented in a clear and accessible manner so that even readers with minimal movement science background will comprehend the material. Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, will give readers the foundation for continued study and real-world practice.
The text begins by introducing students to the basics: motor development, the model of constraints, and the theoretical perspectives relevant in motor development research. After laying the groundwork, the text describes the physical growth and maturation process from infancy to old age, including development and aging effects of specific body systems. Age-related changes in sensation and perception in the visual, kinesthetic, and auditory systems are also explained.
The fifth edition contains several content changes to make the text more user friendly than ever. The inclusion of a chapter discussing the principles of biomechanics presents students with foundational knowledge to ground their understanding of the sequential changes in motor skills development. The text shows how the four components of physical fitness—cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, flexibility, and body composition—interact to affect a person's movements over the life span. It also describes how relevant social, cultural, psychosocial, and cognitive influences can affect a person's movements.
Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, not only provides students with the observational skills necessary for assessing motor development, but it also expertly ties the information to real life. This edition emphasizes the application of motor development concepts to the real world by beginning each chapter with an example of a common experience and then revisiting that experience at the end of the chapter, allowing readers to apply the material to the example. Application questions throughout the chapters challenge readers to consider how parents or professionals might use the material discussed.
To further solidify their understanding, students are provided with a key code allowing them to access an interactive online student resource containing 33 lab activities that can be printed, 21 learning exercises, and more than 200 video clips with footage focusing on infants, toddlers, young children, adolescents, and adults performing fundamental motor skills—subjects often difficult to study because of permissions and policies, particularly for minors. For each video clip, students can pause, replay, or change the rate of speed, giving them flexibility to analyze and then categorize each subject into the appropriate developmental level. Selected video clips are also used with many of the lab activities to provide visual examples of developmental levels. For professors, the text includes a full array of ancillaries, including an updated instructor guide, test package, presentation package, and a newly added image bank.
Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, will also assist students in meeting AAHPERD's Motor Development Academy standards. The text presents essential competencies identified by AAHPERD and provides guidelines for constructing developmentally appropriate activities and designing learning experiences to meet grade-level expectations in preparation for the Praxis exam for physical education. Chapters are organized for student learning with the following features:
-Opening scenarios provide real-life experiences or applications involving motor development in daily living.
-Learning objectives emphasize the chapter's key concepts.
-A running glossary provides easy access to definitions of important terms.
-Key points indicate the theme of a discussion amidst chapter details.
-Highlight boxes provide additional insights into motor development assessment.
-Application questions challenge students' problem-solving skills.
-Summary and synthesis sections review important concepts and integrate those concepts into the constraints model.
-Take a Second Look elements at the end of each chapter encourage students to revisit the chapter-opening scenario, test their knowledge with review questions, and visit the Web site for learning exercises and lab activities.
Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, encompasses the most current research in motor development. It is enhanced with practical online resources for instructors and students, making the fundamental concepts of motor development come alive. By starting with basic ideas in motor development and progressing to larger developmental concepts, this fifth edition will prove to be a beneficial resource for those in the field. The text gives readers a solid foundation not only for beginning their studies in motor development but also for applying the concepts to real-world situations.
Includes an online student resource!To assist students using the text, Life Span Motor Development, Fifth Edition, has a companion online student resource (OSR). Completely integrated with the text, the OSR allows students to experience content through multiple dimensions. Students will receive free access to the OSR with the purchase of a new text, or it may be purchased as a separate component.
The OSR offers students a variety of learning features including 33 lab activities that can be printed, 21 learning exercises, and more than 200 video clips with footage focusing on infants, toddlers, young children, adolescents, and adults performing fundamental motor skills—subjects often difficult to study because of permissions and policies, particularly for minors. For each video clip, students can pause, replay, or change the rate of speed, giving them flexibility to analyze and then categorize each subject into the appropriate developmental level. Selected video clips are also used with many of the lab activities to provide visual examples of developmental levels.
