Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

The role of the occupational therapist (OT) on the educational team and the teacher–therapist relationship was investigated via a survey. Results indicate that the majority of teachers understand the contributions of the OT as well as value the role of the OT. Results suggest that communication, collaboration, and the OT presence need improvement.
