Functional literacy is the ability to interpret written words to carry out instrumental activities of daily living, including money and health management, public transportation use, and meal preparation. This study demonstrated that a functional literacy program, embedded in community-based daily activities, could enhance the occupational participation of a group of sheltered homeless adults. OT practitioners can address functional literacy in similar clients with poor literacy skills resulting from disability.
