Biomechanical and Sensorimotor Strategies (OCCP5208)
UNIT OF STUDY
Students will develop knowledge and skills required to provide occupational therapy for people whose occupational performance is compromised by biomechanical and sensory motor impairments. A variety of theoretical perspectives used to guide practice will be covered. Students will learn how to evaluate performance, design occupation-embedded therapy programs, clearly articulate the theoretical and evidence-based rationale for their programs, and select methods to evaluate outcomes from therapy.
