Adult and Older Adult Occupational Therapy II: Framing and Evaluation explores normative and diverse development influencing a wide range of occupational experiences within the adult and older adult populations. In the context of these age ranges, the course delves into common neurological conditions impacting occupational performance. Through analysis and application of theories, models of practice, and frames of reference, the course provides structure for guiding client-centered screening and evaluation methods while considering cultural, lifestyle, and contextual factors. The course emphasizes development of occupational performance analysis skills through an understanding of client factors, performance skills, activity demands, and the client’s contexts. With a focus on administration and interpretation of standardized and non-standardized assessment tools relevant to adults and older adults, the course bridges evaluation results to inform treatment planning and develops skills necessary to report evaluation findings in a systematic manner.
