Even a manual search through the reference lists was conducted. Ten quantitative articles were included in the study and were assessed probative value and quality review. None of the articles were made in Sweden. Articles were then analyzed on the basis of similarities and differences. The analysis revealed three sub-categories: Interventions to facilitate everyday activities, interventions in school and studies evidence and interventions' effect. ICT tools are used either directly in the activity or in preparation for an activity in everyday life or in school.
