 The purpose of this paper was to investigate the instruction concerning improvement of the residential environment in occupational and physical therapy courses. Questionnaires were sent to one hundred and four schools, and replies received from sixty-four. The questionnaire included items about course content and the backgraounds of course instructors. Results showed that in about 90% of schools, main course content included instruction about space required for patients moving in wheelchairs, installation of handrails, etc, in cerebral apoplexy. Courses in about 50% of schools included instruction about how to understand architectural drawings. Answers for questionnaire items about the background of instructors showed that few had an actual experience of improving a residential environment in clinical practice. The results of this study show that the needs of occupational and physical therapists, regarding adaptation to local environments for the physically impaired, must be more clearly recognized by teachers. Course contents regarding the instruction of concepts in architecture and building, which they are required to understand, varied widely and depended on the teachers, and a need exists to standardize such instruction.
