This course is designed to provide hands-on experiences incorporating the OT process into working with community clients. Education on methods to improve trunk control, transfers, upper extremity movement, fine motor control, and functional mobility will be included using a variety of approaches. Students will be expected to evaluate and treat one client during class time for several weeks using an occupation-based approach. Students will use the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (AOTA, 2008) and select appropriate practice models as a guide to complete an evaluation, write documentation on treatment sessions, and develop home programs for generalization of treatment strategies. The course is designed to help students further develop their professional reasoning skills for evaluation, identification of outcomes, intervention, and discharge planning.
