Developing Occupation-Centered Programs for the Community by Linda S. Fazio (Professor, Department of OT, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This workbook provides a basic guide to the development of occupation-centered programs in the community. It offers what the novice needs to know to initiate and further develop programs for community populations. Only a few programs and populations are selected as examples to showcase the process as it has provided primarily service learning opportunities for entry-level occupational therapy students at both the occupational therapy and occupational therapy assistant levels of education. The populations selected are available everywhere, to every student; in many ways they reflect needs that are global.
