Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Students with CFM were found to have more restricted school participation, as denoted by lower frequency and level of involvement in school occupations and higher rates of parent dissatisfaction with their child’s school participation, when compared to nonaffected peers who do not receive health, education, and rehabilitation services. These results show an unmet need for school-based and participation-focused OT for students with CFM.
