Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Schools need support to facilitate the participation of children with ASD in all school-related activities. A descriptive, qualitative study aimed to identify how OTs could help build school capacity to facilitate the participation of these children through a multitier approach. Focus groups were carried out with OTs and school staff. Concerns about children’s participation and recommendations to develop school capacity will be shared.
