We believe in helping students prepare for and pass the COTA® exam.  As part of our efforts to help every student succeed on the exam, we offer FREE Online Office Hours to give students a way to ask questions and prepare for the exam even after the course has ended.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we have DOUBLED our Free Online Office Hours and expanded their scope. As part of our efforts to help every student succeed on the exam, we offer FREE Online Office Hours to give students a way to ask questions and prepare for the exam even after the course has ended.  Online Office Hours are now held twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST.  The last session of the month will focus on strategies for OTA exam candidates.  Moderated every week by an experienced TherapyEd instructor, our Online Office Hours give students a way to extend their studying and get extra help, especially in these difficult times. In addition, as part of our response to the pandemic, we are expanding the scope of the Online Office Hours as well. Every Tuesday, log-in, ask questions, and get personalized help while also learning from other students' questions. Every Thursday our instructors will review important exam content areas and then answer questions. The content areas covered in coming weeks will be:

  • April 2: Upper Extremity Conditions
  • April 9: Pediatric Conditions:Cerebral Palsy and Spinal Bifida
  • April 16: OT Theory and Application
  • April 23: Splinting
  • April 30: Allen-the cognitive disabilities model, the Allen cognitive levels, and the ACLS
  • May 7: DSM-5 Diagnostic Review and Psychosocial Evaluation and Intervention Approaches
  • May 14: Musculoskeletal Conditions and Biomechanical Evaluation and Intervention Approaches
  • May 21: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Systems Disorders and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation
  • May 28: Neurological Systems Disorders and Neurophysiological Evaluation and Intervention Approaches

  • June 18: Physical agent modalities (PAMs): Indications, Contradictions, Precautions, and the Role of the COTA® and OTR®
  • June 25: Professional Ethics, Competence, and Practice Management, Standards and Responsibilities

Be sure that your camera and microphone are activated when you enter the office hours.  That will help to ensure that the instructor will be able to address your questions efficiently and effectively.

There is no charge for our Online Office Hours--it comes as a benefit of taking the TherapyEd preparation course for the COTA® exam.

 

Hello there, I wanted to let you know that I took my board exam last week and passed on the first attempt :-) I took all of your advice, studied hard for 6 weeks and felt well prepared ‎when I took the test!  Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom and wealth of knowledge with us! I truly appreciate it!
