ON-DEMAND WEBINAR PURCHASE

Presented by Lori Charney and Orley Templeton

Social participation is vital for children’s success in the classroom and functioning within the community and family unit. Occupational therapists have a unique perspective in understanding the complex nature of children’s development of social competence and are pivotal in providing targeted interventions. 

This webinar will provide an analysis of the development of social competence, the factors impacting children’s success in social participation, and the key points of intervention. Evidence-based community program examples, related research and methods of data collection for everyday practice will be explored. Occupational therapists’ distinct value and methods to advocate for the occupational therapist’s role in this area of practice will be discussed. 

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the development of social competence.
  2. Analyze points of intervention for improving social participation.
  3. Incorporate the sensory integration and social participation frames of reference into individual and group-based occupational therapy intervention to assist children in the development of social competence and social inclusion.
  4. Identify occupational therapy’s distinct role in the area of social participation intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder and sensory processing disorder.
