Date Presented 03/28/20
This presentation synthesizes the experiences of four OTs who have provided services to Deaf clients. Themes from the data include diversity of communication methods, practice considerations, and strategies for seeking cultural knowledge. The clinical experiences included in this study offer the potential for improving the cultural relevance of OT services for the Deaf population, as well as sensitizing practitioners to the needs of other cultural groups.
