 A 13-year-old child with athetoid cerebral palsy was placed in a regular classroom through OT's cooperation with teachers and other health care professionals. The main procedure consisted of optimal advice at the support meeting with his mother, teacher and school occupational therapists, as well as an individual planned guidance. The results indicated that the mother's daily burden was reduced and the teachers could objectively assess the child's learning process, as well as experience an effective relationship with handicapped children. The study suggests that OT participation in school consultations may enhance the learning possibility of severe athetoid cerebral palsy children in a regular classroom.
