Our program will include 13 poster presentations describing our students' work on their research and program development projects. These presentations will cover a variety of current occupational therapy topics across practice areas. Topics include: examining outcomes from a constraint-induced movement therapy camp for children, using tablets as adaptive technology in occupational therapy, implementing strategies to combat sensory and occupational deprivation in adults with end-stage dementia at a long term care facility, designing treatment to improve deficit awareness in clients with acquired brain injury, educating teachers about sensory strategies to enable better participation in classrooms, and more!
In addition, our faculty will conduct several round table discussions. Tatiana Kaminsky will lead a session titled "I Can See It Now: Environmental Modifications for Persons with Low Vision" and will discuss strategies that can improve the occupational performance of people with vision loss. Kirsten Wilbur will present a session titled "Mindfulness-based Interventions" and will consider incorporation of mindfulness techniques into treatment interventions, which can be applied across practice settings and populations. Yvonne Swinth will lead a session titled "Let's Play" and will discuss current changes in the play of children and youth as a result of the digital age that impact therapy services across settings and ages. George Tomlin will conduct a session titled, “Collaborative Evidence Projects: Practice Meets University” which will consider ways clinicians can work with our program to support evidence-based practice in their settings.
