A qualitative, phenomenological approach explored OTs’ perceptions of interprofessional collaboration in schools in the United States. Semistructured interviews with 11 participants from all US regions yielded five themes: collaboration is elusive, time is a barrier, administrative support is key, trust yields success, and collaboration is a personal choice. Implications include finding consistent language to define collaboration and the need for continuing education to adopt a collaborative model.
