Abstract
Bayan Azizi was just an average nine-year-old boy playing street hockey with friends and teasing his younger brother and sister when the unthinkable happened. A series of symptoms - a droopy eyelid, a slight speech impediment, some motor difficulties - took him to Children's Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia where a CT scan revealed a tumour in his brain stem. The tumour was not cancerous but was located in a place that made complete removal impossible and was intricately connected to the fundamental functions of life such as breathing, heart-rate, and swallowing and this made complete removal impossible. Over the next few years Bayan faced the possibility of death, endured three brain surgeries, maximum radiation, and chemotherapy. In his compelling yet humorous autobiography told through the lens of childhood, Bayan shares his life story from early childhood to present times, revealing his grit, his down-to-earth acceptance, and his determination to live a full life.

Abstract
An award-winning memoir and instant New York Times bestseller that goes far beyond its riveting medical mystery, Brain on Fire is the powerful account of one woman's struggle to recapture her identity.
When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she'd gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?
In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family's inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis of anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis that nearly didn't happen.

Abstract
Written by child neurologists, this comprehensive, multi-authored volume on autism systematically discusses the classification, epidemiology and neurobiology of autism. Autism lacks a unique etiology or specific pathology, so the behaviorally defined social deficits, language impairments and repetitive behaviors that define autism are explored from a developmental neurology perspective. The evidence suggesting that autism is a disorder of neuronal development is reviewed by experts on the genetics, neuroanatomy and neuroradiology, neurochemistry, immunology, and neurophysiology of autism. Chapters provide comprehensive reviews of the common neurological problems associated with autism such as epilepsy, sleep disturbances and motor and sensory deficits. Neuropsychological assessment, medical and psychopharmacologic management, educational and behavioral interventions, and outcome are discussed within the clinical content of the practising neurologist. The research agenda needed to understand the neurology of autism is emphasized throughout the book and in the conclusion.

Abstract
Project magic is a therapy activity designed to give the gift of magic to people with various physical, psychological and social disabilities. These magic tricks help motivate and stimulate activity for patients to increase physical dexterity, functional skills and communication. Seeing an illusion encourages problem solving, working with numbers and other cognitive skills. Teaching patients these magic tricks and illusions promotes self-confidence in that their ability to perform these tricks themselves puts them on an equal playing field with a non-disabled person. Self-esteem, motivation, fun while learning and rehabilitating is the product of these opportunities of therapy using magic.

Abstract
This text shows recreational therapists how to use the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) from the World Health Organization (WHO), a model that represents a major shift in health care. The ICF looks at health, not from the traditional medical model of disease, disorder, or injury, but from a universal, integrative, and interactive perspective, which includes the social and environmental aspects of disability and health.
The book presents over 30 diagnoses with detailed descriptions. The information includes: review of the typical scope of the team assessment; anticipated RT assessment findings; both the whole team and recreational therapy approach; and common recreational therapy interventions specific to the diagnosis.
