Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

A systematic review was conducted. A search located 14 studies that met inclusion criteria. Six studies examined occupational needs, and eight studies measured success of interventions. Each was appraised using the McMasters Guidelines. Levels of evidence were also determined. Preliminary analysis indicated three studies at high levels of evidence and six of eight intervention studies having statistically significant findings that support the role of OT working with this population.
