So, what is the impediment to having a straight-up, legit OT room? Probably funding. Why is there a funding issue? Beats the heck out of me. It only took me about $700-$800 to fully equip my living room with OT equipment, so you'd think in a school that probably spends that in xeroxing each week, they'd be able to help out the Special Ed dept. and get them the things they need, but so far, equipment and a dedicated therapy room are just sort of "on the list" of things we'd all like.

The kids in the above post have it really really good. Lucky for them, dreaming still for mine. Someday.
