The article considers the effectiveness of intervention strategies to prepare children with special educational needs for inclusive education. It was determined that the approach to occupational therapy takes into account a system of factors that can fundamentally improve the methodological framework and practical guidelines for the activities of professionals in an inclusive environment. This system of factors covers the interrelated components: 1) patterns of stages of sequential development of the child and the creation of a step-by-step intervention program; 2) modification of the child's living environment so that it becomes stimulating and developing; 3) partnership of the occupational therapist with other members of the IEP team, which involves joint identification of its needs, formulation of SMART goals, its coordinated achievement, monitoring and appropriate adjustment of goals. In this article we present a comparative analysis of the areas of responsibility and characteristics of the occupational therapist and sensory therapist as a specialist who partially duplicates the functions of the occupational therapist. The importance of distinguishing between them helps to determine the responsible position of practitioners from irresponsible and to formulate recommendations for successful support of children with special needs. We have developed a model for creating the preconditions for inclusive education for children with special needs, based on such criteria for occupational therapy approach, such as systematic, inventive, collegial, technological and reasonable effectiveness. Scientific evidence of the occupational therapeutic approach is revealed, as well as the technological aspect of the presented model of intervention in the direction of preparing a child with special educational needs for the educational process.
