Evidence Connection articles provide a clinical application of systematic reviews developed in conjunction with the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA’s) Evidence-Based Practice Program. In this Evidence Connection article, I describe a case report of a young child receiving early intervention services and outline the occupational therapy evaluation and intervention processes for supporting this child’s activities of daily living in the home and early childhood education setting. Findings from the systematic reviews on this topic were published in the March/April 2020 issue of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy and in AOTA’s Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines for Early Childhood: Birth–5 Years. Each article in this series summarizes the evidence from the published reviews on a given topic and presents an application of the evidence to a related clinical case. Evidence Connection articles illustrate how the research evidence from the reviews can be used to inform and guide clinical decision making.
