Treatment Interventions for the Pediatric OT Series
Are you looking for a variety of OT Treatment Interventions for Self-Care Skills to implement immediately into your practice? This 3-hour intervention-based, jam-packed course addresses decreased ADL independence, a common challenge among the pediatric population. Participants explore motor learning principles, typical developmental milestones for each area, and most importantly, learn over 150 different play-based treatment ideas to increase engagement success and progress across a variety of intervention settings. Self-Care areas explored include dressing (socks/shoes, shirt, pants, fasteners, and shoe tying), bathing, hair/nail cutting, toileting, wiping/peri-care, oral hygiene, self-feeding, as well as sensory-based feeding strategies. The presenter includes handouts to improve client carryover. The second course in this series is Fine Motor and UE Gross Motor Treatment Interventions.

- Describe types of practice (blocked and random) to identify which type of practice will most benefit future clients for optimal skill development for self-care.
