Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

OTs should be addressing social participation when working with those with ASD, as it is within their scope of practice and is one of the greatest areas of needs for this population. In this presentation, the results of a study comparing the effectiveness of two OT group interventions, a humor-based group and a board-game group, to encourage social participation among six adolescents with autism will be analyzed and the statistical significance discussed.
