Limited healthcare in Punta Gorda, Belize, and surrounding villages called for an assessment of needed OT services. Interviews were conducted remotely and with a free healthcare clinic. Four main themes emerged: (1) lack of early intervention, (2) barriers to accessing school for children with developmental disabilities, (3) high caregiver burden, and (4) lack of social-emotional care. Findings support the addition of OT to the available care in rural Belize.
