Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

A randomized controlled feasibility trial was conducted to explore the feasibility of using a web platform to support parents of children with developmental coordination disorder. The web platform included informational resources, a forum, and a private forum or videoconference with an OT. Parents mainly used the resources and forum sections. To enhance participation, parents suggested adding scheduled meetings. Using web platforms to support parents is feasible yet challenging.
