Abstract

Date Presented Accepted for AOTA INSPIRE 2021 but unable to be presented due to online event limitations.

Celiac disease is a chronic condition, treated by a strict lifelong gluten-free diet. Adolescents need to gain independence and assume responsibility for self-managing their diet while participating in daily food-related activities. Maintaining health, well-being, and quality of life and developing self- and illness identity are central developmental tasks during adolescence. OTs have an important role in addressing and promoting health management needs.
