Sensory Room part 1

Standard

Love this!

Group by Group

We run the Fine Motor group twice a week in Jeannie’s classroom and each time we go to our sensory room before beginning the group. In the sensory room our students are able to engage in a variety of movement activities to help build body awareness, strength and endurance. As students engage in the activities it also allows for choice making and language opportunities.

proprioceptive and vestibular input. There are also

two swing mounts which we can hook up our

Finally done with OT Applications!

Standard

I finally finished completing the entire OTCAS application for 5 schools a few days ago. What a relief! I just have a few more supplemental applications to submit, but now it’s just the waiting game (again!), haha.

I know so much more now than when I had applied two years ago. Since the most overwhelming part is over, I can focus on work and things I really want to do!

I’m so excited for this year. Hopefully I get interviews by September. Fingers crossed, my friends!
