Adult Therapeutic Intervention (OTA220)


Prerequisite Courses

Course Memo

In this course, the student learns to administer various standardized and non-standardized assessments allowed under the supervision of an OTR. The focus is on occupation-based practice in the areas of basic and instrumental activities of daily living, sensory systems, functional movement patterns, motor control, tone management, cognition, and visual perceptual skills. Students also relate client performance to therapeutic treatment goals, choose appropriate treatments, identify any changes to the treatment or goals as needed, and modify treatment plans as appropriate. Students will continue to gain knowledge of professional ethics, documentation, professional behavior, OT/OTA role delineation, and current and future practice trends/issues. Pre-requisites: OTA 160, OTA 205. Credit: 3 hours (2 hours theory, 1 hour lab).
