Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

This qualitative study explored perceptions of students in inclusive classrooms. Results indicated that students relied on paraprofessionals rather than teachers to support learning. Conclusions point to expanded roles for occupational therapy in professional training and development of inclusive school communities.
