Some youth and adults experience challenges when engaging in productive (work and volunteer) activities. Occupational therapy can help to enhance and restore performance, and maintain participation in remunerative employment and related activities. Integrating an understanding of organisational systems with client-centred practice, students will develop the assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills to promote participation in economic and civic activities. In doing so, students will learn: How do I provide occupational therapy within employment and related contexts? How do I promote a person's productivity, given the complex demands of work activities, an individual's capacities, and opportunities available within the environment?
