“As a new OTD program, our faculty has been anxious and excited in anticipation for our inaugural cohort to meet all of their educational milestones with success. Then, this inaugural Class of 2021 was met with challenges, barriers, and delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We had always planned to integrate the Therapy Ed preparation course into our curriculum in the 8th semester as a component of the professional competency seminar. This course has learning outcomes around NBCOT exam preparation and professional transitions from student to practitioner. For this Class of 2021, these objectives became more important and challenging after experiencing delays in fieldwork and adjusting to hybrid communications and learning. Therapy Ed could not have been more accommodating and supportive. They were able to offer a virtual preparation course for our students on the timeline that worked best for all of them. There was flexibility for students who had a conflict and superb follow up from the staff and the course instructor. Our students reported back that the instructor was engaging, helpful, and seemed to truly care about their success. Therapy Ed and Dr. Fleming-Castaldy went above and beyond by scheduling an online “refresher” course for our students (and others) after they completed their Doctoral Capstone placements to review and prepare them for intensive exam studying. All of our inaugural graduates who took the exam in 2021 have passed on the first attempt and the rest of the cohort are showing great success as well! We look forward to a return to in-person Therapy Ed courses but feel confident that our students will be prepared in any format!”

“We are so appreciative of the support and resources at TherapyEd that begin with the personal contacts with the company, the instructors, and the quality and variety of resources they offer. The Office Hours is a great resource for students especially when they are out on their final Level II fieldwork.

Our students who take the course have found it extremely helpful and it seems to increase their confidence with the strategies they learn in the course and the study plans they create.

Personally, I also value the direct support to programs. I am learning more each year as I work with TherapyEd and receive the analysis of student performance on the practice exams and how we as a faculty can reflect and use the results to improve our program to better support student learning. Thank you!

“Taking the prep course was the absolute BEST thing for me. I took the NBCOT twice before finally investing in the course. The course taught me to not second-guess myself, to take my time, to look at key words and utilize the test-taking strategies and tips they offered. It's expensive but it's so worth it. I went into my exam the third time feeling so much more prepared and ready and I'm happy to say I passed my exam with flying colors. If you're wondering whether you should invest in the course or not this is your hint to DO IT! You won't regret it! Thank you TherapyEd!!”

“It exceeded my expectations! It was a great review and gave great hints and practice for multiple choice questions. The instructor was knowledgeable and very good at guiding the group!”
- Megan Shanley, OTR Indiana University
“The course was helpful in that it improved the way I read and interpret questions. The study guide is most helpful in that it is a great overview of OT info (organized and concise). I feel more confident now in my ability to take the exam.”
- Angela Mahosky, Duquesne University
“Before taking the course:
After not passing I was devastated! However, this course provided a different outlook for me. It gave me a chance to practice my test taking strategies and learn how to analyze the questions. The instructor was great and I feel good about re-taking the exam.
After taking the course:
I can't express how much the course helped me prepare academically and mentally. My instructor was wonderful! She did an excellent job and provided the class with concise information. The class was very beneficial to me and I have no regrets. I would like to mention that I was successful this time with my boards! What a relief. I would recommend this course to everyone! Thank you so much for having this course available. Thank you for my recent success!”

“I just wanted to take time to thank TherapyEd for the 2-day prep course and also the study prep materials! The TherapyEd book, exams and rationales helped me ace my exam!! I am so thankful I had this study tool. The rationales were very thorough and to the point. Thank you for helping me claim my OTR title!”
