Pediatric Occupational Therapy II: Framing and Evaluation explores childhood and adolescent development and a wide range of occupational experiences within this population, as well as common conditions impacting occupational performance. Through analysis and application of pediatric theories, models of practice, and frames of reference, the course provides structure for guiding client-centered screening and evaluation methods in a variety of practice settings 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 a family-centered, whole-child approach, the course bridges evaluation results to inform treatment planning and develops skills necessary to report evaluation findings in a systematic manner.
