This research studied a developmental and relationship-based intervention that provided parents with the capacity to co-regulate their toddlers and support their development of empathy. This intervention was provided to mothers who have adopted toddlers with a history of substance exposure or neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). As rates of children with substance exposure and NAS increase, OTs will find interventions such as this one useful and effective in helping these children and their families.
