OT perceives the inclusion of people with disabilities to be mandatory, at large, and specifically in health professions. However, during training of students as OTs, and especially during fieldwork, issues might arise due to disabilities. This qualitative research outlines key issues in supervision of students with disabilities. Findings point to practical recommendations in how supervisors, academia, and field placement can remove obstacles during fieldwork.
