Special Programs


At my internship, I was able to get hours and hours of hands-on learning. I believe I have gotten more hands-on hours here than I ever would have been able to do at home. My supervisor was really good at explaining what was to be done with each client and then letting me do it. She or the physiotherapy assistant was always nearby if I were to need help or have a question. By the end, they were comfortable with letting me run a few programs myself. My co-workers were always willing to help me understand different situations and even go through many of them with me. Plus working with a team of many different therapists was a big advantage because I then got to see the team dynamics in a work place and how certain things can impact the dynamics.  I would have loved to stay longer working with my co-workers. I will miss some of the clients as well. Working there has really impacted my life and made me realize how much I love working with disability, but yet how challenging it can be at times.
