Occupational Therapy -> Executive Function -> Task Completion
Task completion refers to understanding when a task is complete and terminating action toward the task or goal due to completion. Occupational therapists can address this skill in order to help individuals understand the sequence of a task, how to recognize when the task is completing and teach specific tasks or activities to improve independence.
Interventions Within the Scope of Occupational Therapy Practice to Improve Motor Performance For Children Ages 0–5 Years: A Systematic Review 2Author: Tanner, Schmidt, Martin, & Bassi - Themes: Early intervention for children younger than age 3 yr, interventions for preschool children ages 3–5 yr, and interventions for children with or at risk for cerebral palsy. Occupational therapy practitioners may consider using NIDCAP, home-based parent coaching, massage, home programming, and CareToy for children younger than age 3 yr; video games, preschool programs, and movement breaks for children ages 3–5 yr; and EI, CIMT, and BIT or child- and context-focused interventions for children with CP ages 3–5 yr. Interventions for children younger than age 3 yr should actively include parents during interventions and in home program development. For children with CP, interventions should use components of motor learning, specifically emphasizing goal-oriented, activity-based therapy and frequent task practice.
