Attention All Occupational Therapists currently/or have provided treatment using sensory-based interventions

Hello Colleagues,
I am conducting a survey in order to gain an in-depth understanding of occupational therapists’ perceptions of sensory-based interventions, and evidence-based practice. Your opinions are important, and this survey is your chance to express those opinions.  The survey measures opinions and perceptions, which means there are no "right" or "wrong" responses.  I would like to get your participation in order to ensure that each and every occupational therapists’ voice is heard.  Please be aware that your responses to the questionnaire are completely anonymous.  I will not be able to attribute responses to any individual.  I have chosen this approach to ensure that you feel confident and able to give feedback. Please give it your prompt attention. The questionnaire will take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. This project has been approved by Quinnipiac University’s Institutional Review Board. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact Denese Carter, BS, OTR/L at denese.carter@quinnipiac.edu or Tara Glennon, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA at tara.glennon@quinnipiac.edu. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Please forward this survey link to other occupational therapists.
