‘Handwriting & The CO-OP Approach’ by Assoc. Professor Elspeth Froude (PhD)

September 9, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

'Handwriting & The CO-OP Approach

About this Event

The CO-OP (Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance) Approach was initially developed to use with children with DCD (developmental coordination disorder), also known as dyspraxia. It has also since been shown to provide successful outcomes for children with a range of diagnoses who find motor-based skills difficult to learn or re-learn.

It is a child or client-centred, performance-based therapy approach with the potential to benefit many children who struggle with everyday living tasks like handwriting, dressing, using cutlery, playing musical instruments, playing sport etc.

As handwriting is a such complex task, which many children, who are referred to occupational therapy, struggle to do proficiently, Elspeth will be providing some introductory information on:

1. What CO-OP is? and

2. “How’s and Why’s of using the CO-OP approach in your clinical practice.

There will also be a Q&A time.

**This online event will be conducted via a LIVE ZOOM Meeting and the Zoom Meeting link will be sent via email, one week prior to the scheduled date of the event.

**Please note: It will also be recorded and the recording link will be made available to all registrants after the event.

Elspeth is an experienced occupational therapist, certified CO-OP instructor and currently she is Associate Professor (Head of Discipline) in Occupational Therapy, Deputy Head of School, NSW, School of Allied Health, Faculty of Health Sciences Australian Catholic University.

I have arranged this 1 hour CPD event to benefit occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and occupational therapy students from around the world, who are interested in learning more about this approach from an expert in the field.

Trust you will all enjoy! Thank you so much!
