In order for OT practitioners to make recommendations that are age appropriate, consistent with cultural practices, and evidence-based, this study examined the prevalence of household chores for school-age children as a pilot study for the development of age norms for chores. Survey results (N= 252) identified caregivers’ priorities for childhood occupations, as well as the age at which children are regularly and sometimes completing 17 different chores.
