Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Utilizing a stepped wedge randomized control and repeated measures design, this study indicated improved occupational performance and participation outcomes for incarcerated women with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The outcomes of this study have strong potential utility for enhancing the rehabilitation of incarcerated individuals with IDD and advocating for the consistent inclusion of OT within criminal justice service-provider teams.
