Emphasizes assessment of occupational performance, client factors and environmental context(s) of work, industry, and community. The utilization of superficial and deep physical agent modalities as preparatory methods, the design and fabrication of orthotic devices for enhancing occupational performance and interventions for wound healing are examined. Measures to manage pain, enhance mobility and encourage health and wellness are emphasized. This course has a lab component to provide the opportunity to apply knowledge and develop reasoning skills for entry-level practice. Effectively communicating and working interprofessionally for diagnosing, executing and evaluating therapeutic intervention(s) and client outcomes are highlighted.
This course aligns with knowledge, skills, and understanding of developing the competency for completing OT 900: Occupational Therapy Capstone. Students learn how to evaluate clients and the factors that impact occupational performance in work, industry, and orthopedic settings. Students explore the use of modalities, orthotics, provocative tests and assessments, and interventions for functional outcomes. Communication skills and working interprofessionally as members of a rehabilitation team are explored in work, industry, and orthopedic practice.
Emphasizes occupational therapy assessment and intervention related to rehabilitation services for pathological conditions requiring skilled occupational therapy services. Examination of rehabilitative principles including sensorimotor, visual perceptual, and cognitive evaluation and intervention approaches is explored. Students will demonstrate competency in wheelchair management, neurological splint fabrication and interventions to remediate or compensate for neuromotor and/or cognitive deficits. This course has a lab component to provide the opportunity to apply knowledge and develop reasoning skills for entry-level practice. Effectively communicating and working interprofessionally for executing and evaluating occupational therapy intervention(s) and measuring therapeutic outcomes within rehabilitation context(s) are highlighted.
This course aligns with knowledge, skills and understanding of developing the competency for completing OT 900 Occupational Therapy Capstone through developing and advancing skill in the effective evaluation and treatment of adult dysfunction. This knowledge and skill development occurs through assigned reading, didactic lectures, and interactive lab activities. Written examination, experiential laboratory activities and checkouts, fieldwork experiences and in-class application exercises assess student competency.
