Celiac disease is a chronic condition, treated by a strict lifelong gluten-free diet. Children and adolescents with celiac disease face ongoing challenges of making daily dietary choices. As children grow, they need to become more involved in the decision-making process and take on self-management responsibilities. OTs have an important role in promoting self-management of celiac disease and the decision-making process during the transition years from adolescence to young adulthood.
