Introduction

2 Contact Hours

Occupational therapist's time with their young clients is limited and so ongoing participation in developmentally beneficial activities requires that the adults who interact and work with these children use intervention strategies as well. Indirect intervention are strategies that are implemented by parents, teachers, and other adults in lieu of or in addition to the occupational therapy services provided directly to the child. This entry-level/refresher course provides an overview of indirect intervention and is appropriate for occupational therapists and assistants.
