Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Due to societal changes in the paternal role affecting family dynamic, it is imperative for OTs to explore and understand the role fathers have in relations with their child, especially in joint play. OTs are involved in supporting children’s development and can incorporate fathers in promoting joint play by assessing the type and quality of the support they provide to their child as well as its effect on the child’s behavior.
