Effects of Developmental Delay in Children Born to Young Mothers, Comparing the Gender of the Children and How Occupational Therapy Interventions May Enhance Growth and Development

This literature review is designed to examine developmental outcomes of children who are born to young mothers and how occupational therapy can have a positive impact on children who experience developmental delays. Extensive research was done to provide the most important information regarding young mothers, their affect on children, and the specific occupational therapy interventions these children will benefit from. The methods of this study included multiple databases such as Pubmed, Penn State Libraries, and AOTA to collect research articles and other literature reviews. To provide an answer to this question, a qualitative approach was used to process the data and results from these articles. The results of this study found that children do have negative developmental outcomes when born to young mothers. Research also suggested that occupational therapy could support children with a variety of interventions including sensory integration, emotional and social regulation, and most importantly, parent-child integration.
