Occupational Performance: Child and Family - OCCP2088

Year - 2020

For children, youth, and families living in the community and who experience performance challenges, occupational therapy is useful to enhance, restore, or maintain participation in day-to-day activities. Integrating an understanding of childhood development with family-centred practice, students will develop specific assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills to promote participation in day-to-day activities from infancy through childhood. In doing so, students will learn: How do I provide occupational therapy within a family context? How can I promote quality in life through participation in everyday occupation? How do I consider the complex interaction of a person's capacity (physical, emotional and cognitive functioning) with environmental factors whilst focusing on the performance of activities of concern to families?
