  • Background: •Federal law requires students with disabilities to receive post-secondary transition services focused on education, work, independent living, and community participation outcomes •Because the law does not define a specific transition process, service coordination and delivery is often haphazard and ineffective •Although occupational therapists (OTs) are well-equipped to be on transition teams, few are involved in this high-need area of practice •Barriers to OT practice in transition include lack of interagency planning, parent participation, and therapist education about relevant assessments and interventions What are the unique strategies, challenges, and experiences of occupational therapists involved in post-secondary transition planning for youths with disabilities?
