About This Course

This course will cover treatment of pediatric and adolescent conditions.  Normal and delayed development of the infant, child and adolescent are explored.  The lab component incorporates theoretical principles and provides opportunities for students to develop assessment, intervention planning and implementation, and documentation skills to address a range of childhood sensory-motor, cognitive and psychosocial performance deficits.  Students will learn to adapt the environment, tools, materials, and occupations to meet the self-care, work/play, and leisure needs to the pediatric and adolescent population.  Lab activities, site visits and Level I fieldwork opportunities will enable students to participate in and apply pediatric and adolescent treatment principles to practice.
