Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This study examined the impact of AT paired with individualized support on occupational engagement in higher education (HE). Findings indicate that individualized support paired with AT use increases self-efficacy and continued engagement with AT. This data shows that individualized support by an OT paired with AT may decrease AT abandonment and enhance academic occupational engagement in HE, specifically in self-reported academic performance and satisfaction.
