- Working with individuals who have sensory and attention issues to enhance focus and social skills

- Teaching anger-management techniques to individuals with behavioral disorders (e.g., utilizing positive outlets instead of physical aggression, such as expressing emotions through writing or engaging in physical activities)

- Evaluating the need for specialized equipment, such as wheelchairs, splints, bathing aids, dressing devices, or communication aids
