Dr. Helene Polatajko, PhD, OT Reg.(ONT), OT(C), FCAOT, FCAHS
October 16 – 17, 2015
Internationally respected researcher, educator and clinician, Dr. Polatajko will present her work on the Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance approach. Therapists have a unique role in maximizing the fit between what the client wants or needs to do, and his/her capabilities. Traditionally, therapists have emphasized remediation of the client’s deficits in performance components rather than utilizing a task-based approach that focuses on the actual performance difficulties that prevent clients from experiencing performance success. The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) approach is an intervention to support the therapist in enabling performance. Initially created for children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), CO-OP is now used more broadly with both children and adults, particularly with those with head injury and stroke who have performance difficulties.
