Using Occupational Theory Models and Frames of Reference with Children and Youth
Occupational therapists use therapeutic reasoning (also referred to as clinical reasoning) to analyze, problem-solve, and create intervention plans to address a variety of child and family needs. Understanding the many factors that influence a child or youth's occupational performance is complex and therefore requires a structured, systematic, approach. Models of practice provide this structure.
