394 Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Occupational Therapy information to the evaluation process in occupational therapy. The application component of the course addresses evaluation at the individual, program, and population levels. At the completion of this course, students can critically examine and select the most appropriate tools for practice situations using the theory and principles of measurements. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (3 credits) OTD 8385—Sensory Processing Basis of Occupational Performance This course provides the opportunity to examine the theory of sensory integration and practice around sensory processing disorders in occupational therapy through original literature, current information from neuroscience, and evidence-based practice found in articles and through interaction with other students. Participants will apply this knowledge to a specific group of individuals or to a curriculumplan. This is an advancedlevel course; therefore, students are expected to have prior knowledge and experience on the subject. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (3 credits) OTD 8386—Topics in Contemporary and Emerging Practice This course provides focused training on five topics taught in modules. The five modules address occupation-based contemporary and emerging practice areas, advanced skills, and/or professional development. The five modules will include, but are not limited to the following subtopics: 1) Skills—Physical Agent Modalities, Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Kinesiology; 2) Mental Health—Addictions, Trauma-Induced Care, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Violence and Abuse, Telehealth; 3) Children and Youth—NDT, NICU, School System, Behavioral Interventions, Positioning, Seating and Adaptive Equipment, Telehealth, Transition Programs, Cancer; 4) Physical Disabilities—Oncology, Work Programs/Ergonomics, Splinting, Hands Specialty, Positioning, Seating and Adaptive Equipment, Hand Assessments, Ergonomics, Telehealth, Oncology; and 5) Population-Based—Immigrants, Human Trafficking, Social Justice, Disaster Management, Decolonization, Telehealth. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (3 credits) OTD 8474—Doctoral Capstone Experience, Reflections, and Exit Colloquium This doctoral capstone experience provides the student with an in-depth exposure and the opportunity to develop advanced skills, i.e., beyond a generalist level, in an approved focus area. Focus area options include in-depth experience in one or more of the following: clinical practice skills, research skills, administration, leadership, program and policy development, advocacy, education, or theory development. The course concludes with the completion and dissemination of the capstone project, an exit colloquium, and reflection of the student’s doctoral education. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (10 credits) Doctoral-Level Courses Doctoral seminars provide in-depth exploration, study, and training, occurring after returning from the first Level II Experience. The following four courses provide the student with the opportunity to select two courses of 3 credits each from the four courses listed below. The fifth course, OTD 8315 Topics in Contemporary and Emergent Practice, provides focused training in one of four tracks. (3 credits) OTD 8311—Occupational Science This course presents an overview of conceptual frameworks, literature, taxonomies, and research strategies of occupational science. Topics will be examined from multidisciplinary perspectives on work, play, leisure, occupation, and contexts for occupation. Students will select an area for in-depth study. (3 credits) OTD 8312—Wellness in Occupational Therapy This course examines occupational therapy’s role in wellness and health promotion, disability postponement, and prevention in general. Students critically examine various practice models with a view toward developing and refining their own roles in these practice areas. (3 credits) OTD 8313—Applying Measurement Theory to Evaluation Provides students with a general background in measurement theory and assists students in actively applying this information to the evaluation process in occupational therapy. The application component of the course addresses evaluation at both the individual and program levels. At the completion of this course, students can critically examine and select the most appropriate tools for practice situations using the theory and principles of measurements. (3 credits) OTD 8314—Sensory Processing Basis of Occupational Performance This course provides examination of the theory and practice of sensory processing in occupational therapy through the original literature and current information from neuroscience and evidence-based practice found in articles and through interaction with classmates. Students will apply this knowledge to a specific group of individuals or to a curriculum plan. This is an advanced-level course. It is anticipated that students in this course will have some prior knowledge and experience in this area of practice. (3 credits) OTD 8315—Topics in Contemporary and Emergent Practice This course provides focused training in one of four learning tracks that addresses occupation-based contemporary and
