Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to perform a literature review in order to present an overview of evaluations and interventions in occupational therapy for adults with intellectual disabilities.

The search was conducted through the following data bases AMED, CINAHL, ERIC, OT Seeker, PsycINFO, PubMed and Scopus covering the period between 2000 (January) - 2010 (March). The search was limited to empirical studies in occupational therapy written in English and published in peer-reviewed journals. The search terms “developmental disability”

“intellectual disability” learning disability” “mental retardation” “adults” and “occupational therapy”. The final sample that was examined was 22 papers. The result showed that eight of the papers focused on evaluation and three of these included assessments based on Model of Human Occupation (MOHO); Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skills, Assessment of Motor and Process Skills and Volitional Questionnaire. Interventions were described in 14 papers and these were categorized as focusing on function, occupation or environment. Nine of the 22 included papers were written by Swedish occupational therapists. In total six papers were related to MOHO. This shows that the model is a potential support in the implementation of evidence based occupational therapy practise for adults with intellectual disabilities.
