Author: Teoh Jou Yin (Jouyin Teoh)
How do occupational therapy clients’ lives look like through a clinician’s lenses? This presentation aims to compare how clients’ lives look like via two different occupational therapy tools – the Kawa Model and the Canadian Model of Occupational Therapy. We discuss the pros and cons and also the possibility of using both models in combination, not very well known but encouraged by renowned occupational therapy theorists and industry leaders.
