I had to take the time to write you and let you know that I am so grateful for the course! I took my COTA exam 2 times and failed by 9 pts. Then I took the TherapyEd course with Toni Thompson (truly an amazing instructor) 3 days before my exam and raised my score by 31 points!! On the day I took my test I didn’t feel as much anxiety and left unsure as usual, however I knew that I used the methods I had been taught in the course during testing and THAT is what guided me to passing. I have celebrated every day since I passed doing what I absolutely love; as a pediatric COTA! Mrs. Thompson was right when she said “All the studying and all the hard work, this is what it takes to be a COTA”. Those words ran through my mind over and over and encouraged me to do this for myself! On scoring day when I passed she was one of the first people I notified! I can’t thank her enough!
