OT Science Scholar Presentation and Reception, Feb. 14

FLYER_OTscholar_14From Boston University, Dr. Wendy Coster is the featured guest at the 7th annual Occupational Science Scholar presentation on Friday, Feb. 14, from 4-5 p.m. in Thurmond McRae Auditorium. Her talk is titled Developing Effective Interventions in OT: Balancing our Focus on the Whole and on the Parts.

Coster, a professor, occupational therapy department chair, and director of the Sargent College Kids in Context Research Lab at Boston University, will discuss developing effective interventions to better understand the quality of life in children with disabilities. 

“Thinking differently about disability in terms of a child’s capacity as opposed to deficits has made a difference in how we approach challenges and think about interventions in the school context,” Coster stated in an interview posted on the Boston University School of Public Health website. “And, perhaps, in subtle ways, this shift has altered the way that the children view themselves.”

The presentation is free and open to the public with a reception to follow in the Trustee Library.
