Parenting

This resource looks at the functionality of over 120 baby products. It helps guide consumers and therapy practitioners toward making educated decisions about products that support optimal engagement in child care activities, especially if a parent has a disability.

Product analyses were looked at with the principles of universal design in mind, along with elements of the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, as well as considering how individuals with disabilities interact with their environment. Learn more about our process of product analysis here.

Despina also created a parenting tip sheet that addresses product selection and advocacy.
