Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

·Articulate the development of emergent and early literacy and the effects on access to print, reading, and early writing 

·Identify the role of occupational therapy practitioners in emergent and early literacy 

·Apply literacy concepts during evaluation and intervention

 

Description:

Literacy is embedded within a child’s daily living activities (writing, reading, listening, speaking). Without these basic means of communication, all aspects of occupational participation can be impacted. Occupational therapy practitioners have a critical role in literacy including supporting the development of literacy and providing professional development at a systems-level; evaluating a child’s ability to participate in literacy activities; and providing intervention to enhance participation in literacy activities. This course will offer occupational therapy practitioners working with children the knowledge and skills on emergent and pre-literacy development that can be integrated into OT evaluations and interventions.
