It is that time of year again – back to school. Here are 10 tips to help you get started on the right “foot” (for the PTs) or “write path” (for the OTs). Get it hahahaha! Ok, I know lame joke but I couldn’t resist. Here we go:
#1: Get organized. Here are a few specific tips to help –
1. Try using one color folder per school. For example, for every student at school XYZ use a red folder. For each student at school ABC use a blue folder.
2. In each student’s file, keep an general information page including goals. There are several free versions of this from TeachersPayTeachers such ashttp://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/IEP-at-a-Glance-1392781
3. Keep a binder for all your daily notes. Using file folder dividers with tabs, write the student’s name on the file folder tab. Try to keep it in alphabetical order to quickly find a student’s name. Check out the Therapy Planner for 2015-2016 to organize your binder at http://yourtherapysource.com/therapyplanner.html
