Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v9 n4 p332-339 2016
This preliminary, descriptive study yields information on the utilization of occupational therapy services within Head Start programs. Participants completed an Internet-based survey of 25 questions pertaining to the understanding, scope, and utilization of occupational therapy services. Surveys were completed by 35 respondents nationwide. A total of 55.17% of respondents indicated occupational therapy services are available in their Head Start programs, yet 78.57% of respondents indicated the Head Start teacher addressed concerns related to occupational therapy practice areas. This preliminary data indicates that occupational therapy services are understood and available but not fully utilized in Head Start programs.
