OTH 514: Occupational Performance in Children & Youth

This course presents an integrated view of development with a focus on the occupations of childhood including movement, play and adaptive/social behavior in babies, toddlers and youth. The focus of this course is in comparing and contrasting typical and atypical growth and developing appropriate observational and clinical skills necessary for professional practice. Performance concerns, disease/disabilities, and family/cultural dynamics that occupational therapists would likely encounter in professional practice with children will be reviewed.
