Course Description

Students experience occupational therapy pediatric practice at in-patient and outpatient hospitals, or in-patient or outpatient rehabilitation centers, or long-term care facilities. Opportunities to observe acute care practice and interact with children of all ages and adolescent patients experiencing cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, congenital limb disorders, PDD or other motor or neurological diagnoses are provided. Students are expected to model interprofessionalism, as permitted by site (e.g. in-service presentation, form an IPP team to work with a client, proposal for an IPP team on a unit; create a survey to establish perceptions of IPP; run a focus group to identify barriers to IPP.)
