Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

There is a lack of research examining the role of occupational therapists (OTs) in teaching independent living skills to at-risk youths. Results of this study were combined with the significant findings from a 2013 pilot study, in which the effectiveness of an occupational therapy life skills program for juvenile offenders in foster care was examined.
