Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

Our study of Medicare claims found that young adults with autism spectrum disorder (N > 5,500) experienced low rates of preventive and occupational therapy (OT) and physical therapy service use and high rates of emergency department use. There is a need for wellness and preventive services, creating opportunities for OT to develop interventions to improve care.
