Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The aim of this study was to explore current practices of OTs with children with autism spectrum disorder in Jordan for purposes of identifying educational needs and ultimately to improve service delivery. This was a survey-based study with a self-administered questionnaire. Results from 42 respondents were partially consistent with previous research and indicated the need for curricula modifications and continuing education to ensure best practices with children with autism.
