This study used in-depth interviews to explore the experiences of occupational therapists that previously implemented the Specialized Teaching and Enhancement of Performance Skills for Kindergarteners (STEPS-K) program. Qualitative analyses of interview transcripts revealed the primary theme of knowledge exchange as illustrated through three sub-themes: (1) conversation, (2) camaraderie, and (3) creating the best fit. Results suggest the STEPS-K program enhanced collaboration between teachers and occupational therapists, and could be tailored to meet the needs of the classroom.
