Course Description

Welcome to the course Life Skills Program for Individuals with Disabilities!

This course provides an overview of an occupational therapy student’s doctoral capstone experience at a community-based functional day program for adolescents and young adults with disabilities. The student’s occupational therapy doctoral capstone experience focused on program development.

In addition, it reviews where the doctoral capstone experience was completed and the artifacts that were created including a life skills curriculum binder of graded activities, an article discussing the role of occupational therapists in community-based programs, and visual materials for a life skills subscription box.
