Collaboration between teachers and OTs improves student performance and promotes positive student outcomes in school-based OT (Kennedy and Stewart, 2012). Collaboration with OTs was valued by 85.1% of respondents, and 62% of respondents considered OT’s goal in the schools to be focused on fine motor skills. This survey shows that general education teachers value collaboration with OTs but do not fully understand the role of OT, which may limit the effectiveness of collaboration.
