 This report introduces the school-based occupational therapy practice of a 9-year-old girl with psychogenic stress induced by discord with friends and a teacher. After changing schools, she spent all day in a separate classroom with only the school social worker. Occupational therapy involved developing collaborative relationships between parents, the school, the child, and external experts focusing on shared goals toward activities they expected of the child through ADOC for School, rather than setting goals around the disability or impairment. This support intended to enable the teacher, parents and/or child to achieve these goals. In this context, the role of the occupational therapist is to give advice based on occupational performance analyze the goals, and increase and maintain the motivation of teacher. The occupational therapist and teacher created a Goal Attainment Scale by expressing expected outcomes in terms of what the child should be able to do with specific support.
