Dear school-based OT practitioners,  
I am a doctoral student studying social inclusion for students with Extensive Support Needs (often educated in separate classrooms away from their general education peers for most of their school days). I am writing to request your input for a survey. Here is the link:
What you share will be invaluable for my research. Additionally, you will have a chance to win one of ten 50$ Amazon gift cards to thank you for your participation.
This study seeks input from school-based OTs and special education teachers who work with students with Extensive Support Needs. If you can share it with other special education teachers and school-based OT contacts who serve students with ESN, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your time!

My name is Karen Brady, a faculty member at the University of Scranton. My faculty mentored research group of graduate occupational therapy students is conducting an IRB approved research study entitled ``What are Home Health Occupational Therapists' Perceptions and Routines Regarding Addressing Factors Related to Healthy Home Concepts?” We are looking for OTs who have experience with home health to take a short Likert scale survey. 

I'm Hannah Morris, an OTD student at Rush University in Chicago, IL. I wanted to share an opportunity for underrepresented racial/ethnic students, faculty, and practitioners in OT/OTA to participate in my survey study titled, "Antiracism in Occupational Therapy Education: Perspectives of Underrepresented Minority Stakeholders." The purpose of this study is to explore the supports and barriers to professional success experienced by underrepresented racial/ethnic minority students, faculty, or practitioners in OT/OTA. 
This survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and can be accessed using the QR code in the attached flyer (for mobile devices) or at the link here:
I hope you will consider passing this survey along to any individuals who meet the above criteria. Thank you for your time!
