OT 646 Professional Practice Skills II (6)
This course offers a comprehensive exploration of major OT evaluation methods and intervention techniques for physical and psychosocial dysfunction. Evaluation standards and principles will be critically examined. Lectures will combine with experimental laboratory sessions to develop skill in biomechanical, visual-motor, cognitive-perceptual, psychosocial, and activities of daily living evaluations as background skills for intervention planning. The role of the Occupational Therapist in increasing function, diminishing dysfunction, and enhancing the quality of life for persons with disabilities will be emphasized.
