Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This qualitative research examined the experiences of families living with FXS through an occupation-centered lens. We investigated family occupations via their own voice, through semistructured, recorded interviews. By analyzing occupations, including routines, behaviors, thoughts, interactions, and contexts, OTs can create individualized interventions and promote further research. Results are presented in a conceptual model: Occupations of FXS: Dynamic Interactions of Nested Contexts.
