This text is essential for occupational therapy graduate students, instructors, and pediatric clinicians.

Drs. Lenin C. Grajo and Angela K.

The text also covers underexplored contexts such as those who have been bullied, children and youth who are LGBTQ and gender expansive, children and youth of color, those who live as a member of a migrant family, and those who have lived with and through adverse childhood experiences.
