Biography

Dr. Bedell is Associate Professor, Tufts University, Department of Occupational Therapy, Medford, MA, USA. His research examines participation of children and youth with disabilities and physical and environmental factors that affect their participation. A key facet of this research is discovery of strategies that families already use or can use to promote their child's participation in real-life contexts. Dr. Bedell also is primary author of the Child and Adolescent Scale of Participation (CASP) and Child and Adolescent Scale of Environment (CASE) and co-author of the more recent Participation and Environment Measure for Children and Youth (PEM-CY). The ultimate aim of his body of work is to guide development of interventions, programs and policies to promote meaningful participation of children and youth with disabilities.
