Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The prevention of school bullying has been identified as an emerging area of practice for OT, yet there is a dearth of research on how the field is addressing this public-health epidemic. This study emphasizes the need for training, innovative interventions, and a defined role in order for OTs and assistants to be a part of the team in schools to help address bullying and create a safer environment to enable the participation of students with disabilities.
