“Thank you Toni Thompson! Thank you TherapyEd! Thank you Ben, my husband, best friend and best encourager! Thank you God for gifting me with a brain to process all this information again. At age 52, while raising three absolutely amazing kids, and working as an occupational therapist wearing "a different kind of hat" while engaged in community development for 20 years through a faith-based organization working in rural poverty, never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined myself sitting for the NBCOT board exam again. I was blessed by the day in which an occupational therapy department head shared with me the existence of "TherapyEd". I had been preparing on my own, with the resources that I had found through my research. But I know I could not have survived the 6 months marathon culminating with my exam now in October, had it not been for the personal and focused help that came in to the process on August 10th when I attended the TherapyEd training in Austin with Toni Thompson. It was the best investment for me! It helped me put order in my studying and calmness in my preparation process. I needed all of that to re-engage and re-awaken this knowledge. :) Toni, Thank you for all your support. Thank you for responding to all my frantic texts, detailed emails and phone calls. The most important one was the shortest email you sent me the night before the exam :) "No more studying. Relax tonight. Relax." I would have reviewed for 2 more hours ?. Instead I was alert and rested on testing day. I would not have made it without your guidance and support. I needed everyone of those strategies! The content study and personal test taking analysis while taking a practice test. I put ALL of them in practice. Your presence and availability made my experience bearable when I was about to give up, focused and with direction when feeling lost, and ready and equipped to tackle the next step ahead. Thank you!!! What even blows my mind is that my score was higher than the one I got when I sat for the NBCOT in 1991! Thank you so much! Blessings! Leonora Newell, OTR again (after I accomplish my PDU units :)”

“My name is Alexa Royer, and I had Ms. Paula Carey as a tutor throughout my studying to take the NBCOT for the second time. I just wanted to let you know the tutoring was very helpful to me, and I was able to pass the exam on my second attempt with a 30 point increase. I believe Ms. Paula had much to do with my passing score and with building my confidence prior to test day. I really appreciate how this is offered to students and believe it can benefit many others who struggle with standardized tests as I do myself. Thank you!”
