Occupational therapists offer a wide range of services to help people with autism spectrum disorder realize their full potential in daily occupational engagement and performance. Unfortunately, funding and access to occupational therapy are inconsistent (per provincial jurisdiction), and too often suboptimal in our country.
The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists and CASDA are holding a Professional Issue Forum on the experiences and perceptions of occupational therapists delivering services to people with autism. This is part of their annual conference. The goals are to:
• Collect enriched perspectives of occupational therapy services and access across the country;
• Define the ideal positioning of occupational therapy in the continuum of care for people with autism spectrum disorder;
• Identify resources that are required to achieve this ideal vision for practice;
• Propose key advocacy actions for individual occupational therapists and the Association the next five years.
