Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The results of a national survey of 524 OTPs’ perceptions and practice patterns on collaborating with teachers was conducted. Results indicated facilitators and barriers to collaboration. Implications relate to service delivery and knowledge. Future research should explore how to meet the needs of all students in context and to further explore opportunities to obtain evidenced-based knowledge, as well as to promote the distinct value of OT.
