Occupational Performance: Community (OCCP2087)

UNIT OF STUDY

Many adults experience challenges participating in community, social and civic activities. These individuals may benefit from occupational therapy services to enhance, restore, or maintain participation in environments outside the home. Considering a broad community context, students will further develop their assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills relevant to activities such as transportation or shopping. In doing so, students will learn: How can I advocate for and promote people's participation in activities within their local communities? Students will also examine the occupational therapy role in community development where populations face occupational injustice.
