The abstracts of articles published between 2007 and 2016 in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy were analyzed. The most common theme in these articles was behavior-based interventions in children, which showed a significant increase in the latter half of the study period. Considering that 13–20% of American children experience mental disorders, this represents a significant step toward enhancing the individual coping skills of children and transitioning them into a productive adult life.
