Abstract

 

Social and emotional development directly influence occupational performance in school, play, and social participation. With the adoption of social and emotional learning (SEL) standards becoming more widespread, it is important that occupational therapy practitioners understand how SEL standards, principles, and language can be incorporated into occupational therapy practice. This will ensure that therapists are documenting services and advocating for the profession in ways that are meaningful for school and health care teams as well as the recipients of occupational therapy services. This article examines the basic constructs of SEL, the domain of occupational therapy in SEL, and areas for intervention in SEL development.
