Occupational therapy and the occupational therapist’s role in educational settings have evolved along with educational reforms. More recently therapists, school administrators, and teachers are searching for service models relevant to educational environments and curriculum. Parents, students and school personnel seek collaboration, mutual decisionmaking, and inclusion of students with their peers as much as possible. However, the education and training for occupational therapists covers services in many settings such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools. They are trained to assist people of all ages, using diverse therapy approaches.
