Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The purpose of this study was to evaluate gaps between parent and provider perceptions of the family-centeredness of services, and the contribution of the service setting (outpatient versus schools) to these gaps. Findings indicated significant gaps between parents and providers, and between practice settings, in all assessed domains. These gaps suggest areas of opportunity for OTs to enhance their practice in order to foster more effective partnerships with parents.
