Abstract

Single-subject designs allow therapists to evaluate the effects of treatment on individual students, the effects of individualized occupational therapy services across a group of students, and the effects of a specific treatment procedure on a group of students. The purpose of this article is to provide information to enable therapists to use single-subject designs effectively in public school occupational therapy programs.
