This course focuses on children from infancy to adolescence and gives comprehensive coverage of both conditions and intervention techniques in all settings. The text includes the latest research and theories, new techniques, and current trends to keep you in step with the changes in pediatric occupational therapy practice with a strong focus on evidence-based practice.
The course is organized into sections that reflect the knowledge and skills needed to practice occupational therapy with children. All though the modules of this course contain related information, each module stands on its own, such that they do not need to be read in a particular sequence. Case reports exemplify related concepts with the chapter and are included to help the reader integrate the material. You can expect throughout the entire course research notes boxes, evidence-based summary tables and case study boxes to assist each learner in a better understanding of the material.

Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).
