Description

Ideal for Occupational and Physical Therapists, Teachers, and Parents

Earn 0.5 AOTA Continuing Education Units* or Approved Provider logo - American Occupational Therapy

Learning labs provide experienced people an opportunity to further their existing knowledge of adaptive design and cardboard construction. You build skills through constructing complex user-specific adaptations for clients on your caseload (therapists) or people in your life who require adaptations.

Learning Labs are offered only to those who have successfully completed the 3-day course sequence: Adaptive Devices: Made to Fit. Those basic courses introduce participants to best practices needed for intervention, including assessment, planning, and construction of basic user-specific adaptations.

A participant’s readiness for a learning lab is assessed by the instructor at the conclusion of the 3-day course. Your first learning lab should be scheduled within a year or less after completing the basic coursse. Labs are individually scheduled as needed. You may register for 1, 2, or more days as needed to complete your desired project(s).

IMPORTANT: Before registering here on EventBrite, please contact ADA (susan@adaptivedesign.org or 212/904-1200) to confirm your prior course and choose a date or dates that work for you and our staff.

ADVANCED LEARNING LAB OBJECTIVES

  1. Participants will be able to pro-actively design user-specific adaptation/s for the client across various categories, including: Positioning, Academics, Communication, Mobility, Art & Play, and Self-Care.

  2. Participants will improve the ability to write a formal justification for adaptation/s on a case-by-case basis that includes:

    1. How the client is functioning without the device

    2. Why the functional level is problematic

    3. Projected benefits of the adaptation

  3. Participants will be able to create a visual representation of the adaptation needed.

  4. Participants will be able to take accurate measurements of the client and record observations that will inform the customization.

  5. Participants will expand their basic knowledge of construction, cardboard and other materials, safe tool use, and finishing techniques.

  6. Participants will identify and implement the sequential construction steps necessary to produce a functional adaptation.

  7. Participants will understand the steps necessary to provide a user-specific adaptation to the client -- starting with identification of need and ending with the delivery of the adaptation.
