Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The understanding of the OT practitioner's role addressing puberty in adolescents with ASD is limited. This study explored predictors of comfort for practitioners through a descriptive survey. Through the survey, challenges, interventions, and comfort with puberty were identified. The data revealed correlations between education and experience influencing comfort. The results guide practitioners in addressing puberty in adolescents with ASD.
