This study explored the effectiveness of playgroups as part of comprehensive early intervention services using a team-based approach. OTs have a unique role in fostering an inclusive environment in which children participate in play while interacting with their parent and peers. Results from this mixed-methods study indicate that playgroups have potential to build parent competence, increase parent responsiveness, and support the social–emotional development of the child.
