The purpose of this research study was to investigate home-program compliance of parents and caregivers of children receiving occupational, physical, and speech therapy in outpatient pediatric clinics following an educational program on Kleim’s tenets of neuroplasticity and the health belief model. Overall, parents and caregivers showed an increased understanding of neuroplasticity and its impact on home programming.
