Family Matters: Facilitating Success in Occupations: Using a Multi-Facet Family-Centered Approach with Child and Families

A child and family are intertwined in dynamic relationships, co-occupations, and family occupations. A myriad of elements impact the child and family, such as grief, trauma, life events, history, and occupational profiles. A multifaceted approach, including participation in joint, mutual occupations, offers benefits to not only the child, but also each family member. This course will focus on how family-centered practitioners serve to strengthen family bonds and cultivate improved quality of life.

A Multi-Level Approach to Developing Adaptive Video Gaming Supports      

Gaming is commonly identified by clients as a meaningful occupation. While clients report gaming is a functional intervention and preferred activity, independent access is often limited due to a small market of adaptive gaming supports that cannot support all clients. This interdisciplinary presentation will review research and design of customized adaptive gaming supports, including educational material and 3-D printed adaptations, to support clients with varying motor and visual profiles.
