 The objective of this study is to examine the outcome of OTs' school visits by measuring how and how much the regular class teachers understand OTs' roles. Drawing on 17 pieces of literature on special support education, a 42-item questionnaire was created. The regular class teachers in the city filled out the questionnaires and were divided into three groups : teachers who had received OTs' visits and direct support (Group A), teachers who had received OTs' visits but never received direct support from OTs (Group B), teachers who had never received OTs' visits (Group C). The results indicate that Group A showed a deeper understanding of OTs than Group C. Group B and Group A showed equal deep understanding. The degree of understanding of OTs among the three groups suggests a positive outcome of OTs' school visits for special support education.
