Occupational Performance Adaptations I

The Occupational Performance Adaptation series (I, II, & III) is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to use a "modify/adapt" intervention approach to meet occupational performance needs of individuals and populations with varied disabilities in diverse practice settings. Occupational Performance Adaptations I introduces students to the fundamental skills of activity analysis, adaptation, and instruction. Students then apply these skills to a wide range of activities of daily living (ADL) and instrumental ADL (IADL) tasks to develop intervention plans that promote participation in ADL and IADL. Students also learn to evaluate ADL and IADL with a focus on measurement and analysis of the person-task-environment transaction of clients (individuals and populations) with varied impairments, ages, and backgrounds. Specific learning objectives follow.
