Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The OT project used a mixed design to determine the impact of consultation OT services in a faith-based preschool. Teachers were educated on motor-skill development and methods to create motor opportunities within classroom routines. Postproject, teachers indicated improved confidence to incorporate motor activities into preschool routines. The project identified that community-based preschools should be an area of focus for OT practitioners.
