How did you hear about Addie’s Autismfitt?
By google searching occupational therapy in San Diego
What are three things that you have learned most as a student of Addie’s?
- Building rapport is a huge part of OT, you won’t be able to help a client or their parent/guardians unless they trust you.
- Always have at least 2 backup plans! You never know what to expect during sessions!
- Clients need to practice skills outside of the clinic in order for the task to feel relevant, which is why family compliance is also very important—everyone needs to be onboard.
What date did you start and end with program?
June 1, 2015 – August 20, 2015
How has your time at Addie’s AutismFITT impacted your perspective on autism/autism community?
I have previously worked with children with Autism and have a sibling who is on the spectrum, so my perspective of Autism hasn’t changed very much. I had a very positive experience at Addie’s and have learned new skills to work with children on the spectrum and their families.
Would you recommend our facility to fellow OT/PT/SLP students?
I would highly recommend Corey to take on more fieldwork students! She has a lot to offer and did an excellent job guiding learning experiences.
What was your favorite part about completing your fieldwork at AAFC?
Being able to feel like I made a difference in a child’s life. ☺
Thank you for being a wonderful student intern Jasmine Ou! We hope the best for you!
