Course Detail
Course Components:
This course provides a capstone experience related to the use of technology both as a medium for occupational therapy intervention, and as a means of promoting occupational performance in people with disabilities. Students will learn the principles of technology assessment as related to individuals and environments, and how to select and develop technologies to enhance performance and prevent dysfunction. Modular units will address technology interface selection, environmental modification principles, as they relate to how a person is occupationally engaged as well as the political, social, and economic factors associated with technology selection. This lab class will also have a practice-driven project during the course of the semester.
