If you think back to when you were a student, I bet you can easily recall how nervous you were before starting fieldwork! If you were anything like me, you were hoping to get a placement in a setting you loved, where you could learn a lot, and be supervised by an incredibly knowledgable and supportive OT.
And now, as a practicing clinician, you're probably realizing what a tall order that is! Despite the need for competent fieldwork supervisors, this isn't something that we get a lot of support on in the field. Many OTs want to take on fieldwork students, but worry that they don't have the knowledge, skill, or time yet.
But I'm here to tell you that you are ready, and we need you!
I created this fieldwork supervision manual with the busy school-based OT in mind. It's everything you need to facilitate an excellent fieldwork experience, all in one convenient place. Never again feel like you are not ready or organized enough to take on a student!
This 13-page manual is completely editable and yours to keep for life, modifying as you need to support the specifics of your district and position. It includes everything you need to provide a supportive fieldwork experience, from getting your student ready for their first day, to completing their final performance evaluation.
When you purchase, you'll immediately have access to the manual (Microsoft Word and Google Doc versions both available) + a space to ask me any questions about it!
Being a fieldwork supervisor is one of my favorite roles as an OT. It is an immensely gratifying experience, and I know you'll feel the same once you have the right tools to support you. You are helping shape the next generation of OTs, and that is a priceless contribution. Thank you!
