Occupational Performance: Education (OCCP3076)


Many children and young people experience challenges engaging in activities associated with school and other educational contexts. Occupational therapy can help to enhance, restore, or maintain children's participation in school-related activities, and prepare for a transition to adulthood. Integrating an understanding of human development and educational systems, students will develop the assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills to promote the school performance of children and youth. In doing so, students will be able to answer the questions: How do I provide occupational therapy services that are collaborative and consider the concerns of all involved? How do I assist educational systems to provide an inclusive environment that promotes participation for all children and youth?
