Pediatric and Adolescent Practice
Course ID: OTA 220
Treatment of pediatric and adolescent conditions. Normal and delayed development of the infant, child, and adolescent are explored. The lab component incorporates theoretical principles and provides opportunities for students to develop assessment, intervention planning and implementation, and documentation skills to address a range of childhood sensory-motor, cognitive, and psychosocial performance deficits. Students will learn to adapt the environment, tools, materials, and occupations to meet the self-care, work/play, and leisure needs of the pediatric and adolescent population. Lab activities, site visits, and Level I fieldwork opportunities will enable students to participate in and apply pediatric and adolescent treatment principles to practice.
