Abstract [en]

It is of great importance that all students receive the support they need through a wide range of different professional knowledge. Principals and teachers in Sweden expresses that it is difficult to meet the breadth of students' different needs. In Sweden, it is unusual for occupational therapists to be placed in schools despite their expertise on how the relationship between the individual, the activity and the environment influence each other. The purpose of this study was to describe occupational therapy interventions in schools. The method used was scoping review and 20 articles were included. Inclusion criteria for the articles were that they would be peer reviewed, written in english, published from 2012 onwards, refer to students 6-18 years and include occupational therapy interventions conducted in schools. The results show that most studies were from the United States and Canada, but also Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom were represented. The results indicated four areas that occupational therapists work in. These were children with special needs, cooperation between occupational therapists and teachers, after school programs and handwriting. The conclusion is that occupational therapists have many possible areas to work with in order to support students in school.
