This mixed-methods study identified college student self-perceptions of readiness for independent adult living in key occupational performance areas. Results from quantitative online surveys and qualitative open-ended interviews showed that college students may benefit from training in home management, financial education, and broader exposure to government issues. College-age clients receiving OT services may also benefit from this as part of the OT intervention program.
