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



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.
