This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a proposed occupational therapy home program (OTHP) for children with intellectual disabilities (ID). Children with ID were randomly and equally assigned to OTHP or to no OTHP groups. The primary outcome measures were Canadian Occupational Performance, Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency-Second Edition, and The Children's Assessment of Participation and Enjoyment scores at 10 and 20 weeks. The 20-week OTHP produced significant difference in fine motor function, activity participation, and parent satisfaction with performance, compared to those of no OTHP. Pediatricians can advise families to implement 20 weeks of OTHP with an average 15 min per session to facilitate functional changes of children with ID. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
