Using Activity Analysis and Database Decision Making to Teach Leisure Skills

Occupational therapists often approach mental health concerns of students by addressing leisure to increase overall participation. However, the lack of a standardized process and poor data collection are often limiting factors. This 2-hour course offers a solution by focusing on the how-to aspects of teaching a leisure activity. The presenter includes treatment strategies and resources needed to create an activity analysis, an efficient intervention plan, and a simple data collection system to inform practice. A case study focuses on the game of UNO. But these step-by-step guidelines can be applied to teaching any leisure task across the life span.
