OTA 100    Introduction to Occupational Therapy    1 Unit

Prerequisite: None.
Hours: 18 hours LEC
Description: This course has been designed to provide the student with information needed to determine if occupational therapy (OT) is a suitable career option. The student is introduced to human occupation as participation in everyday life activities. In addition, the course will address how health, wellness, disease, and disability affect engagement in life tasks and how OT interventions are used to maximize performance within chosen activities. The role of the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) is defined, with explanation of the history of OT as well as current and emerging practice settings. Professional activities, requirements, ethics, and behaviors are also discussed. A four-hour observation in an OT clinic or program for special needs populations is required. Students are responsible for securing their own observation sites, with guidance from the instructor, as well as the related transportation to/from the facility. Some facilities may have additional requirements for student observations, such as a clear tuberculosis test and/or fingerprinting. Students are responsible for the cost of these additional requirements, if any.
