The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the perceptions of OTs working in EI, regarding their understanding and implementation of family-centered practices (FCP). Nine participants shared their descriptive accounts in working with families. Four themes emerged identifying areas affecting the delivery of FCP by OTPs: confusion, insecurity, multiple roles, and systemic issues. Results highlight the need for training on FCP and in addressing systemic issues.
