Abstract

When one considers the amount of time that children are under the charge of the educational system, it becomes clear that successful participation within this environment is imperative. If, as is articulated, the educational environment provides children with multiple opportunities for engagement, and the development of play, it becomes imperative as occupational therapists and occupational scientists to understand, appreciate, and positively impact the facilitators and barriers to occupational engagement in the educational setting. Additionally, observing the interplay between school and home performance is equally imperative as we attempt to support children in a comprehensive manner.
