“Confidence without clarity is a disaster” - Sadhguru
You want to be clear on the nuances of school based OT before you find yourself knee deep, struggling to stay afloat.
I found myself investing numerous hours, and working twice as hard to figure out how the school system functions, the logistics etc. and yet constantly felt uninformed and incompetent. And I hated that feeling! I was thrown into the school based setting several years ago with no support, training or mentoring in place. Unfortunately, this happens way too often, actually ALWAYS!
So, I totally relate to the frustration of not being able to deliver to the best of your ability as a result of being thrown into something unprepared...
It is AWFUL! But it does not need to be.
And that is the very reason I am here for YOU!
You don’t need to spend hours figuring out the system and coping with it.
Instead, use the time to invest in yourself and do what you like best - provide outstanding OT services. In doing so, you will feel equipped as a valued IEP team member, empowered to support the children you serve!
