OTP 551 — Developmental Components of Living II
The content covered in this course, along with the preceding course, Developmental Components I, addresses the practice of occupational therapy related to infants, children, and youth. The two courses span the developmental sequence from birth through adolescence and address the typical occupations at each stage. Instruction builds on a cumulative knowledge base to effectively address typical and atypical development throughout childhood. Building on previous coursework in assessment and data collection, students will learn the outcome measures and assessment methods that are appropriate for children and families. Integration of previous coursework is embedded within the curriculum to develop appropriate occupation based intervention for the pediatric population. Common diagnoses of the children are included in case-based approaches. Emphasis is on the functional needs of the child within the family and community.
