Product Overview

By Sylvia A. Wilson, MSc, OT(C), and Gregg Landry, MHA, OT


The ability to competently analyze an occupation, activity, or task is a fundamental skill of the occupational therapy practitioner. Task analysis, the process of analyzing the dynamic relation among a client, a selected task, and specific contexts, is a critical clinical reasoning tool for evaluating occupational performance. This new edition of this foundational text guides occupational therapy practitioners in using task analysis to understand clients and their ability to perform specific, purposeful activities.


Aligned with the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Task Analysis expands the understanding of clients to include individuals, groups, and populations and how task analysis applies to each. Occupational therapy practitioners increasingly serve clients at the group and population levels, which is reflected in updated chapters. This edition aims to provide students and practitioners with a clear understanding of how task analysis applies to everyday occupational therapy practice.


Each chapter contains assignments to challenge students and readers and promote learning, and case examples promote real-world application. An extensive Client Profile and Task Analysis Form provides a template for the clinical world, and examples of its use are included throughout the text. A flash drive contains the form, assignments, case examples, and AOTA official documents.
