Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Better awareness of peers with disabilities in the school system allows for a positive classroom environment and learning experience for all children. Increased awareness provides the possibility that school systems could modify their curricula to better suit individuals with disabilities. In the school system, OTs help children participate in their school activities, including socialization with peers.
