The occupation of sleep in pediatric occupational therapy: A family-centred approach (May 8, 2018)

The occupation of sleep in pediatric occupational therapy: A family-centred approach (May 8, 2018)


Sleep affects performance in daily occupations for children and their families. While sleep duration continues to decrease for all ages, the repercussions of inadequate sleep include risks for difficulties in psychological health, emotional health and cognitive performance. Sleep within pediatric occupational therapy practice requires a contextual approach to address the full impact of sleep disturbances. Participants, using the Person-Environment-Occupation Model (Law et al., 1996), will identify the barriers to sleep participation and performance, as well as areas which enable sleep creating a complete sleep profile. The participants will apply this analysis process toward case studies enabling reflection on integration into their own personal practice.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Identify occupational performance issues regarding sleep from a developmental standpoint using the Person-Environment-Occupation (PEO) Model.
  2. Examine sleep performance patterns across pediatric populations.
  3. Construct and apply evidence-based occupational therapy interventions related to sleep hygiene protocols and direct sleep interventions.
