DOTD 731 - Pediatric Assessment and Intervention

3.00 credit hours
This laboratory course introduces students to the role of occupational therapy with a focus on the occupations and delays or disabilities that impair participation in occupation and roles of children and adolescents. Students learn the evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adolescent clients and the impact of delays and disorders on occupational performance areas and components. Students learn how to provide remediation and compensation for physical, mental, cognitive, perceptual, neuromuscular, behavioral skills and sensory dysfunctions in pediatric settings. Laboratory sessions emphasize the application of intervention theory, evidence based practice and treatment techniques for specific conditions.
