This evidence-based guide, produced in partnership with Sport for Confidence CIC and endorsed by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists, details how boccia can be used as an assessment and intervention tool for occupational therapy practice.

People with a disability or other long-term condition are much less likely than the general population to be physically active. As a result, disabled people don't fully benefit from the many social, physical and mental benefits associated with an active lifestyle.
It's therefore considered a priority that occupational therapists integrate sporting activities for their therapeutic potential and also for their role in enabling people with a range of health conditions to build a resilient habit of being more active.

Boccia is a target game which relies on skill, accuracy and tactics. Typically a team sport, boccia lends itself perfectly to a therapeutic group setting but boccia can also be used as an individual intervention. This guide provides the practical information needed.
