Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

People with disabilities often cannot participate in the community due to barriers in the community environment. In this research presentation, we discuss an educational intervention designed to train entry-level OT students on community-environment accessibility evaluation. We will also describe the outcomes of this educational intervention on 41 students’ knowledge and skills.
