5 Therapeutic Process OT identify occupational performance issue
Identify occupational performance components Define the goal Measurable outcomes: as defined by goals

6 Targeting OPC’s Select an activity
Identify activity demands (task analysis) Consider client’s abilities and interests Modify environment and/or activity demands to target component. Modify task demands (grading) or environmental components to maintain challenge.

7 Case study 68 yo Female Left Parietal lobe CVA
Prior to CVA independent for all ADL’s and IADL’s working as personal care worker.

9 Intervention Plan Occupational performance Issue (OPI)
Occupational Performance Component (OPC’s) Treatment Plan Demonstrates challenges completing small meal preparation and clean up independently Decreased balance in standing Engage in standing tasks to challenge balance Decreased sensation and impaired knowledge of self in space. Education sessions regarding safety and setup Decreased grip strength of right hand to hold and manipulate heavy objects U/E strengthen and in hand manipulation program Decreased fine motor coordination when handling utensils Engage in fine motor and in hand manipulation tasks Difficulty integrating upper and lower extremity during tasks Engage in simple standing tasks to create self awareness Decreased shoulder strength and movement patterns Task specific ADLs and IADLs graded for success

10 Rehabilitation Session (Bowling)
Targeted OPIs: Balance Coordination Motor planning Integration of upper and lower body Normalized movement patterns

11 Grading the Task
