Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study merges implementation science with a qualitative, comparative case-study design to examine implementation of a recess-based intervention designed to promote free play for children with disabilities. We found that factors such as school culture and climate impacted implementation more than financing, resources, or expertise did. School-based implementation research of this nature is fundamental for examining the translational potential of OT interventions.
