Sorting Game

Sorting Game

Printed out another game that my child can do independently. I also put my laminator to good use for this activity! This game is perfect for skills such as sorting, categorizing, and receptive language. Thank you, pinterest!

Acorn Math Activity

Haven’t updated in a while! But I have been busy since I’ve started working with another family. I still haven’t heard back from schools.. I am hoping that no news is good news for now. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I just wanted to post the acorn math activity I made for one of the kids I work with. I hope this works. We’ll see about that tomorrow!

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!

The Beginning of Another Journey

Standard

This blog is going to be about my learning process: my current journey of trying to get into occupational therapy (OT) graduate school as a second time applicant, life, and everything in between.

The views expressed in this blog are mine and are no way endorsed by my employers, dog, or university I attended. I hope to use this as a space for my own self reflection to keep inspiring myself and other future OT students like me, everywhere!

I graduated in May 2011 with a BS in Community Health; concentrations in Rehabilitation/Disability Studies and Health Education and  Promotion. I first discovered OT in high school when my grandmother had a stroke. Through getting to know her OT and seeing the power of therapy, I knew that this was the path for me. Since then, I have immersed myself into the field. My path to becoming an OT continually shapes me into the person I am today.

In college, I became more involved in volunteering and working with people with disabilities. I have also observed OT in the school, clinic, and hospital settings. I currently work as a rehab aide, play group instructor, and special needs babysitter. The people I work with inspire and teach me every day. Everything I have experienced so far will help me become the best therapist I can be.

I want to assure people that they are not alone in this. If I have been able to share my story with just one person, I have truly succeeded. I hope to continually update the aspiring OT student community out there with my own experiences as well as my reapplication process of getting into graduate school and ultimately becoming a licensed OT.
