This study demonstrates the effectiveness of a novel, client-centered OT intervention, named PREP, for improving the participation of youth with disabilities. By removing environmental barriers, OTs enabled 28 youth to successfully take part in the activities they identified, such as shopping with friends, riding a bike, and joining a glee club. These findings support a shift toward community-based ecological practices that occur in real-life situations.
