This level 2 unit, which comprises both academic and practicum streams, addresses concepts related to occupational performance across the lifespan, specifically focusing on birth to adolescence. Its focus includes the influence of physical, mental or social capacities, environments and meaningful occupations on human development and the acquisition of skills. Students will study how physical, mental or social disability can handicap individuals at any stage of life, the occupational consequences that can result and methods of adaptation to overcome those which inhibit or preclude occupational satisfaction. Topics to be addressed in this unit include: the identification of occupational issues using a lifespan approach, including roles and culture; learning theories applied to occupational performance; physical, mental and social impairment which affect occupation; person-centred approaches to enable adaptation towards individual goals; environmental adaptation of a social, political or physical nature. The students will participate in project groups, workshops, and seminars to solve occupation based case scenarios, and in experiential learning, practicum preparation, site visits and experience in the field.
Small group assignment (800 words) 20%, case study (1600 words) 30%, practical report (800 words) 20%, tutorial quizzes 10%, fieldwork assignments (800 words) 20%. Failure of a fieldwork component in the Bachelor of Occupational Therapy will normally lead to exclusion.
Note: students must achieve a pass in both Part A HSO205 and Part B HSO206 in order to meet the prerequisite requirements of HSO303 and HSO305.
