This article describes two studies that focused on parents’ expectations and satisfaction with occupational therapy intervention for their children (N = 208). The first study determined the psychometric properties of the Parents as Partners in Intervention (PAPI) Questionnaire set (n = 146). The 2nd study examined parental expectations, satisfaction, and perception of their child’s functional gains from individual- (n = 30 parents) and group- (n = 32 parents) based interventions. Overall, the results of these studies further support the PAPI Questionnaire set's validity and reliability and suggest that parents’ expectations are high and not necessarily in line with their actual satisfaction with the outcomes of their child’s intervention and functional gains.
