Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Series: Family Quality of Life", course #1840 which is offered for AOTA/0.4 and NBCOT/5.0.
There is a dynamic relationship between people, their occupations and roles and the environments in which they live, work and play. When disability disrupts the engagement in occupation, all areas of life are at risk for impaired performance and quality of life. Pediatric disabilities can create family impairment, isolation, and stigma. Occupational Therapy practitioners must view childhood disabilities as a stressor within an interconnected system within the family that can affect health-related quality of life outcomes for the child. This third webinar in a 3 part series will focus on intervention approaches to promote Family Quality of Life.
