Autism and Enablement : Occupational Therapy Approaches to Promote Independence for Adults With Autism - image 1 of 1

About this item

The authors, who work at the Kent Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) Team in Kent, UK, and founded the Kent Autism Spectrum Conditions Enablement intervention, outline their enablement approach, a short-term, strengths-based intervention led by occupational therapy for adults with autism to become more self-aware and self-sufficient, based on a two-year trial study they conducted and within the policy context of the UK. They detail the establishment of this intervention for clients in Kent with autism, showing how professionals can help people to realize better lives. They provide background on the Kent ASC Team’s intervention, based on their specialties in autism practice, research, and occupational therapy, and explain autism spectrum disorders and their impact on individuals; why they thought it was beneficial to propose a study of a specialist enablement intervention, considering issue-specific research, relevant literature, and the views of people with autism; the intervention from the perspective of the occupational therapy role; their research findings and individual case studies; and whether the intervention has delivered its objectives, key learning from the research and intervention, and recommendations for improvement.
