OT 647 - Topics of Pediatric Practice Graduate Elective

4.00 credits.
This course provides an in-depth study of a diversity of practice in areas related to pediatric populations. Pediatric practice covers a broad array of settings, ages, and ability levels.  Through this course, students will advance their understanding of childhood occupations, family systems, and models of practice, in addition to interventions that will increase meaningful participation.  Since pediatric practice involves a sophisticated balance of conditional, pragmatic, narrative, interactive, procedural, and ethical clinical reasoning; a case-based approach to learning will be a primary mode of teaching.  Specific topics addressed in this course are guided by student interest and faculty expertise.  Experiential learning in community settings may also be used to support the students’ learning. *Prerequisite(s): OT 515  and OT 533 .
