Description

COURSE VIDEO Find out about the Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) 01:14 This degree will enable you to help people with disabilities, recovering from injury or with ongoing conditions to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life, by teaching alternative techniques to achieve a given task and facilitating improvement of skills. Graduates are eligible for membership with Occupational Therapy Australia and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.



Occupational therapists work with their clients to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life. This might involve teaching alternative techniques to achieve a given task, or facilitating improvement of skills. Occupational therapists collaborate with family and carers where needed, and typically work in teams with other health professionals.



The course covers a wide range of topics including theories of what people do in daily life and why; knowledge of the development of human capabilities (e.g. cognitive, motor, psychosocial) and the ways in which injury and illness typically disrupt them; activity and environmental analysis; and theories and techniques for promoting participation in daily life.



The Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) incorporates significant clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities, providing hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised environment. This allows students to combine the academic components of the course with the practical abilities required of the occupational therapy profession.
