Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study presents the results of a survey exploring practice trends, caseloads, service delivery models, and job satisfaction of school-based OT practitioners (OTPs) and how they relate to best practice. Findings indicate that most OTPs do not adhere to best-practice guidelines, such as providing contextually based interventions. Practitioners cited a lack of procedural knowledge and decreased advocacy skills as barriers to implementation of a workload approach that aligns to best practice.
