Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This pretest-posttest quasi-experimental pilot investigation used a client-centered outcomes measure, Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS), to identify gains achieved following attendance to OT sessions focused on financial literacy for teens living in a homeless shelter. The teens collaborated with graduate OT students to develop goals and then identified the self-perceived gains following participation in the group sessions.
