Motor and Process Abilities in Occupations
|Course code OCCT2252||Units 10||Level 2000||Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Health Sciences|
This course introduces the student to possible occupational issues associated with the motor and process abilities of a person. This includes the Person Environment Occupation [PEO] relationship. The student will study the effects of neurological conditions on motor and processing abilities through case (or client) based scenarios [CBL]. The course develops student knowledge and application of assessments and interventions relevant to motor and processing abilities within the occupational therapy process based on evidence based practice principles.

|Objectives||Upon completion of this course students will be able to:|
1. Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how neurological conditions affect occupational issues.
2. Link knowledge in neurological conditions to the occupational therapy process in the context of professional practice.
3. Analyse how neurological conditions affect motor and processing abilities in their daily occupations including the effect on Person Environment Occupation [PEO].
4. Demonstrate competence in assessment skills.
5. Demonstrate the ability to develop client-centeredness while considering occupational issues.
6. Synthesise and apply this knowledge to the application of the occupational therapy process for people with neurological conditions.
7. Demonstrate their ability to apply and reflect on professional reasoning and behaviours.
