When children receive OT, they are expected to willingly engage in tasks that are difficult. This is often not the case. This research surveyed OTs nationwide to examine the impact of challenging behaviors on a child’s therapy participation. Results indicated that children primarily exhibit behaviors to escape the demands of therapy, with therapists expressing safety concerns, lost time, and frustration. Knowledge and feasibility of an evidence-based behavioral intervention were also explored.
