Changing Occupational Therapists' Knowledge of Their Role in Secondary Transition Planning
Abbott, Barbara L.; Provident, Ingrid
Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v9 n4 p382-396 2016
Students with disabilities need to effectively transition to adult occupations after secondary school. Occupational therapists are uniquely qualified to support this transition to adulthood; however, school-based occupational therapists report a lack of understanding of their role in transition planning (Kardos & White, 2005; Mankey, 2011). The purpose of this mixed-method study was to explore the effectiveness of a six-module e-training intervention designed to teach school-based occupational therapists about their role in secondary transition planning. Participants completed pre/post tests and provided qualitative information via online discussion. Results suggest that online training modules are an effective continuing education intervention to improve occupational therapists' knowledge of secondary transition.
