Occupational Therapy | Psychiatric and Mental Health
American Journal of Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapists can rely on typically developing (TD) siblings’ expertise in treatment interventions.

Photovoice was found to be a suitable method for eliciting the narrative of children ages 9–11 yr.
