Content

This level 2 unit, addresses concepts related to the occupational development of children from birth to adolescence. There is a focus on identifying the developmental progression of occupations over time. Students will develop their ability to evaluate children’s occupational performance via clinical observation supported by occupation-based assessment tools. Students will describe and apply how meaningful occupations such as play and self-care, can be impacted upon by person and environmental factors by the application of occupational therapy theoretical models. Students will analyse and articulate how specific health conditions can impact upon both children, and their families’, participation in meaningful and health promoting occupations. Students will learn how to interpret this information to formulate occupation and family centred goals. Sourcing, selecting, justifying and articulating evidence based Occupational Therapy intervention strategies and plans to achieve these goals will be investigated.

Students will address these topics via attendance at weekly classes, 'hands- on' problem based learning seminars each week and interactive on-line activities and engaging assessment tasks
