Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This qualitative study investigated parent and organization experiences of a sensory-friendly theatre program. I will report key findings, including meaningful and capacity-building experiences of parents of children with disabilities and theatre staff. This study illustrated the potential of sensory-friendly theatre and organization-level OT consultation to promote community participation at population levels and build organizational capacity in the access realm.
