The purpose of this presentation is to educate OT practitioners about functional movement disorder (FMD) from the perspective of the people living with the condition. It will include data from five participants living with FMD about how the disorder has impacted their participation in major areas of life. It aims to raise awareness about the disorder and the opportunity for the OT profession to play a key role in improving the quality of life for people living with FMD.
