2 University of Kentucky, Lexington, USA.

Community participation is vital to children's development and provides opportunities to practice social communication skills. Although previous studies suggest that young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) experience decreased community participation, there is little empirical evidence on the precise patterns of participation that may influence social communication opportunities. Therefore, this pilot study investigated the communication among families of children with ASD ( n = 5) versus typical development (TD; n = 5) across various community locations. Read More

Examining Driving and Participation 5 Years After Traumatic Brain Injury.

OTJR (Thorofare N J) 2018 07 19;38(3):143-150. Epub 2018 Feb 19.

7 Craig Hospital, Englewood, CO, USA.

Participation is often considered a primary goal of traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation, but little is known about the influence of driving on participation after TBI. The objective of this study was to examine the independent contribution of driving status to participation at 5 years post TBI, after controlling for demographic, psychosocial, and functional factors. Participants ( N = 2,456) were community-dwelling individuals with moderate to severe TBI, age 18 to 65 at time of injury, and enrolled in the TBI Model Systems (TBIMS) National Database (NDB).

A Novel Rubric to Evaluate Wearable Cameras for Assessment of Interrater Reliability.

OTJR (Thorofare N J) 2018 04 17;38(2):121-130. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

1 Towson University, MD, USA.

Research has reported on traditional methods of assessing interrater reliability but, currently, no such standard protocol exists for selection of alternative methods of assessing interrater reliability, such as wearable video cameras. The professions of occupational therapy and occupational science take a unique ecological perspective when evaluating individuals, which focuses on the naturalistic perspective of an individual, ideally resulting in optimal performance. Given current advancements in technology, wearable, low-cost, unobtrusive, first-person view digital video cameras are readily available for use in research. Read More
