Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Camp Jabiru (CJ) is a naturalistic camp that provides OT through a replicable fidelity process for children with developmental differences. Campers improved their functional performance as measured by the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) from both parent and OT ratings. COPM positive change remained stable three months postintervention. The findings suggest the OT intervention provided at CJ via a replicable process has a positive and lasting impact on occupational performance.
