Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

OTs can create systemic change and improve transition stakeholders’ understanding of OT’s role in postsecondary transition planning. Continuing education (CE) courses, seminars, and evidence-based modules can be strategically conducted to inform transition stakeholders about OT’s role in transition. The results of this research demonstrate that if CE opportunities are conducted in a systematic fashion, therapists and transition providers will embrace OT’s role in transition.
