Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) Training Course
CliniKids are running a three day Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) training course and we are now inviting registrations.
The CO-OP approach, originally developed for children with developmental coordination disorder (often referred to as dyspraxia) has achieved excellent outcomes for children and it is likely the approach has the potential to also be beneficial to many children with autism. The CO-OP approach is client-centred and encourages individuals to be involved in the goal setting and in the developing of cognitive strategies to help them achieve tasks of everyday living.
This performance-based therapy approach can be used with children who struggle with everyday tasks such as dressing, grooming, handwriting or cycling, and has been shown to be successful for children with a variety of diagnoses who experience difficulties with learning or re-learning motor based skills.
There are no restrictions or requirements for attending the course. However, to become a certified in delivering CO-OP therapy, you must be a registered occupational therapist, physiotherapist or other qualified rehabilition specialist.
Date: Thursday 30th April, Friday 1st May 2020 & 12th September 2020.
Venue: CliniKids, 100 Roberts Road, Subiaco WA 6008
