This workbook provides a basic guide to the development of occupation-centered programs in the community. It offers what the novice needs to know to initiate and further develop programs for community populations. Only a few programs and populations are selected as examples to showcase the process as it has provided primarily service learning opportunities for entry-level occupational therapy students at both the occupational therapy and occupational therapy assistant levels of education. The populations selected are available everywhere, to every student; in many ways they reflect needs that are global.
