Credit Hours: 2

Application of treatment interventions for conditions described in OT 210. Emphasis will be placed on specific activity/modality selection, treatment and goal setting.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate providing remediation and compensation for physical, mental, cognitive, perceptual, neuromuscular, and sensory functions (B.5.6 & 5.8)*;

  • describe basic features of theories, models of practice, and frames of reference that underlie the practice of occupational therapy relative to physical disabilities (B.3.1 & B.3.2)*;

  • demonstrate the ability to assist with the development of occupation-based intervention plans and strategies, including goals and methods to achieve them, by selecting and analyzing tasks relative to an occupational profile, occupations, performance skills/patterns, activity demands, contexts, and client factors within an intervention plan (B.5.1)*;

  • demonstrate the ability to select and provide direct occupational therapy interventions and procedures to enhance safety, health, and wellness, and performance in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs, Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), education, work, play, rest, sleep, leisure, and social participation for specific diagnoses/disabilities discussed in this course (B.5.2)*;

  • apply the use of thermal modalities in occupational therapy intervention through a pseudo-treatment session specific to appropriate diagnoses; demonstrate heat, ice, and paraffin; describe ultrasound, and electric stimulation (B.5.15)*;

  • demonstrate the ability to teach compensatory strategies, such as the use of technology and adaptations to the environment that support performance, participation, and well-being, when a remediation approach is no longer available to an individual with a specific physical disability (B.5.24)*; and

  • incorporate appropriate information from a scholarly report within the course's sensorimotor treatment plan project. (B.8.8)*.
