The Cognitive orientation of daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) is a client-centered, performance-based, problem-solving approach whose goal is to enable individuals to successfully perform everyday activities they want, need or are expected to perform. This evidence-based intervention has been used successfully with both children and adults with a variety of conditions (e.g., Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder (high functioning, stroke, traumatic brain injury).
This workshop will take place in two parts:
The first part of the workshop consists of two consecutive days. The aim of this first part is to understand the theoretical foundations of the CO-OP approach and how to implement the approach. At the end of this two-day workshop participants will be able to:
- Adopt a top-down clinical reasoning and provide the rationale for using a top-down approach
- Undertake a dynamic performance analysis to uncover performance issues
- Use a guided discovery process to bring their clients to identify specific cognitive strategies that will enable successful task performance.
- Apply a variety of techniques that facilitate the generalization and transfer of learned cognitive strategies.
The second part of the workshop consists of one consolidation day that takes place 4 months following part one so as to permit participants to apply CO-OP in their work context, with their client population. The aim of the consolidation day is to provide an opportunity for the consolidation of skills.
