This scoping review found 27 articles relating health literacy to EI. Analysis resulted in multiple themes, including a need for training to improve communication skills of EI providers, revision of written EI materials needed to increase effectiveness, and recommendations for making the EI system more accessible. Use of health-literacy principles by OT practitioners working in EI programs could improve access, utilization, and child outcomes for families.
