Though praxis is a concept that is suffused within the DIR-FCD™ model and pediatric OT practice, it often eludes clear definition. This term is commonly used interchangeably with motor planning, and yet, this doesn’t fully capture the complexity of praxis. Present in nearly every aspect of daily functioning, this capacity is nearly invisible, and often occurs outside our awareness. This means it can be very difficult for parents and practitioners to ascribe meaning to the associated emotional and behavioral responses to challenges in this area. This presentation will use discussion and video case examples to provide a practical definition and functional working model of praxis in order to hone the clinician’s observational skills, expand their practice, and bolster their confidence in sharing this integral aspect of a child’s functioning with parents and others professionals.
