OCCT 6625 - Occupation Based Practice I: Pediatrics


5 Credits

This course covers major theoretical frameworks, concepts, and models of practice used in occupational therapy evaluation and treatment of infants/children.  The effects of disease or disorder on occupational performance will be introduced.  An emphasis will be placed on the use of occupation as a therapeutic medium, patient/family education and training, analysis of abnormal movement patterns, and examination of atypical sensory patterns.  Students will apply treatment interventions that will address impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions as they relate to occupational performance.  Clinical reasoning skills will be utilized to make educated decisions regarding appropriate treatment methods using a client centered approach.  Case studies, laboratory experiences and Fieldwork I will provide opportunities for students to enhance thier understanding of these concepts.
