TherapyEd’s OTA Prep class creates a social learning atmosphere that is individual, responsive, immediate, and dynamic. The course stresses developing critical reasoning skills within the context of the exam. Active learning is emphasized, including practice in reading, interpreting, and answering multiple choice questions to help assess individual strengths and weaknesses. At the heart of the course, instructors motivate and teach students to breakdown and analyze questions to understand why one answer is the best among three or four possible choices and why three answers are the best among six possible choices. Appropriate tools and resources to implement a successful study plan are provided and actual exam behaviors are replicated to better develop the reasoning abilities needed to be successful on the exam.

Hello My name is Heather Smith and I wanted to email you to share my success story with Therapy ed. 

The first three times of taking my exam and failing all three with the score of 437 I used the purple book, Pass the OT, and AOTA PDFs and none of those materials helped me to pass. 

I was very intimidated by the Therapy Ed book but knew for certain that I would have to study it to achieve my goal. I re-took the therapy ed course with Toni Thompson and then spent 2-3 sessions with her tutoring me one on one. She told me this: “It is best to prepare for a 10K and show up to find out it is a 5K than to prepare for a 5K and show up to find out it is a 10K.” That was the example she gave about therapy ed and it stuck with me. She told me to study questions and use a highlighter to highlight important key words and use the strike out method. She told me I knew what I was doing and I knew the material and to just practice questions. So that is what I did. I went through every exam in the back of the therapy ed book and every Rationale. 

I took my exam on May 3, 2019 and found out that I was  Heather Lynn Smith, COTA/L on May 8, 2019. My score increased 40 points following Toni Thompson’s advice and studying questions and rationals in the back of the therapy ed book. Toni is a jewel and a great asset to Therapy ed and I know that you all are very proud to have her as I feel very blessed to have had her as a tutor. 

I hope this testimonial will help someone else who is struggling to pass this exam.
