“I am writing regarding Paula, my tutor, to pass on to you how great I think she is. I think she is an incredible motivator, she holds people accountable, and most importantly instills confidence in her students.

I am still on quite a high from learning I passed. I sort of can't believe it still, I was going through all the ones after the test I was certain I didn't get and assumed that cost me the test. BUT, it didn't!

I'd like to thank you for being the biggest reason I passed this test. I know you'll say it was Me who was the biggest reason but I think it was Paula's approach, attitude, motivation, and willingness to help that propelled me over the hump. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me pass and really think you are very good at what you do. I hope we stay in touch or our paths cross again. Thank you, Paula!

“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!”

“I appreciate the time and all that you have done in supporting my preparation for the NBCOT. I PASSED MY EXAM and I can't help but think of people that have helped me through this arduous process. Susan, thank you so much for all that you do to support students like myself. Wishing you a beautiful day!”
- Monica Martinez, USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy
“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!

“We did it! We passed. Dr. Toni Thompson and I were an excellent team. I was just about to give up when a friend told me to go to TherapyEd. There were several people involved in me passing but it was Dr. Thompson who finally was a perfect fit. Her focus was on me the student and she wasn't ironing or cooking while she was tutoring me. She taught me how to clinically reason. What helped the most was we took the most challenging questions I got wrong and while I understood the rationale, we went through the question to really analyze it further. Through those discussions other weaknesses were brought up and we discussed those weaknesses. Its very difficult for a person to go back to a center after failing an exam even if it is due to a few points. Since I associated the center with a very negative experience, Dr. Thompson suggested I go past the testing center again, bring a friend and get some lattes and sweets, and after talking to a few people at the center it became a less negative experience. During my 1 1/2 process I envisioned a hero. For me the hero was Rocky. The day of the test I wore my Rocky tee shirt and a Rocky sweatshirt. I sat in my car for 30 minutes and listened to his fight songs and other motivational tapes. I took several Rocky quotes with me such as "Going in one more round when you don't think you can. That's what makes all the difference in your life." Also, "You, me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done."

I was with one company before and I lost thousands with promises and passing guarantees. The tutor used Quizlet questions and old NBCOT questions. TherapyEd was the one company that did not insist on selling me on spending money on packages. They did not threaten to take me out of the classes if I did not buy packages and if I did not take their tutoring classes. Only TherapyEd and one other company I used did not pressure me to buy packages. Nor did they take advantage of a person who was just simply trying to join a field they loved and was interested in since age 18. They also let me take the class twice. Which by the way is excellent. If I had only gone to TherapyEd from the beginning I could have saved myself a ton of money and heartache.

Thank you TherapyEd for being an ethical and professional company. I highly recommend Toni Thompson as a tutor and I will be a return customer when I go for my OTR boards.”

“This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-science review in a clear, concise format. It contains beautifully detailed illustration, information organized in an outline form, and a wealth of supplementary resources. It is easily the best PRAXIS review text I have come upon and has been eagerly adopted by our program and enthusiastically embraced by our faculty and students.”
- Rhea Paul, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
“I really believe I wouldn’t have passed without this review book. It was excellent. The chapters were outlined beautifully. The practice questions were great and gave me a real sense of questions I would come into contact with during the test. I have nothing to say but good things about the book. I really liked the explanations of the answers in the textbook. Overall, this review book is great.”
- Allison Biddinger, Western Michigan University
“The book provided a wonderful review for the various topics related to the PRAXIS examination. Students have commented to me that it is a valuable resource! They are particularly impressed with the “Teaching Points” provided with questions including a rationale for making the best choice. I highly recommend this book for all students to prepare for the PRAXIS and achieve a passing score on their first attempt.”

“The National Speech-Language Pathology Examination and Study Guide is the most thorough and advanced SLP Praxis review manual on the market. It is exceptionally organized with well thought out exam questions. Students would benefit from reviewing it before completing the Praxis.”
