Theramoves offers a wide range of live CEU courses for Occupational therapists to advance their clinical reasoning, knowledge, and skill sets for a variety of settings and populations. As evidence-based practitioners, it is important to constantly expand knowledge of current research, including new techniques and frames of reference to properly treat each unique client effectively. Utilizing the appropriate tools and techniques to enhance the quality of life for patients is what sets OT apart as a function-focused discipline.
What is the role of occupational therapy?
The term sensory diet was coined by occupational therapist Patricia Wilbarger to describe incorporating specific, targeted sensory-motor experiences into a child’s schedule to enable them to maintain an optimum level of arousal necessary for functional performance.
The ability to modulate incoming sensory input is a crucial foundational skill that sets the path for higher-level motor and learning activities. When all of a child’s energy is focused on handling what should be an automatic, subcortical response, he does not have the available capacity to focus on engagement, attention, and learning.
Occupational therapists support clients whose health, environment, or circumstances make it difficult for them to participate in their desired daily occupations. They help clients identify and reach targeted goals and gain functional independence using a variety of techniques, skills, and frames of reference to improve activities of daily living. Occupational therapy is a people-oriented field, and its aim is to improve the quality of life and independence of individuals in the area of importance to them.
