Lesson Presentation



Occupational therapy services enable clients to participate in their everyday life activities in their desired roles, contexts and environments, and life situations. Their scope of practice includes the following domains:

  1. ADLs (Activities of Daily Living)
  2. IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living)
  3. Rest and Sleep
  4. Education
  5. Work
  6. Play
  7. Leisure
  8. Social Participation

Except for Rest and Sleep, at a high level, these domains closely resemble the domains in ABA programs.

So… if a client is receiving both O/T and ABA services, who does what? More importantly, who should do what? Add to this conundrum, Speech domains and it becomes clear as mud.
