I was thinking of choosing physical therapy as a career. I was wondering after i finished my schooling, got my degree, and a job. worked for a couple of years and saved up enough money to establish my own clinic where i can hire people to work for me, etc. how much money would i make a year? at least $100,000?? thanks!
i’m really interested in becoming an occupational therapist…not a physical therapist.
but are there other catergories that branch off that?
and what’s the difference between a social worker and a therapist, and which is the better route to take?
also, if i could get the annual earnings and educational requirments, that would be awesome.
i really want to do something involving psycological therapy, but i just need to some info to help me decide.
I am a high school junior and I’m confused on what I should go into after high school: go for a Ph.d in psychology or go for physical therapy. Psychology has always been my main interest, but people always warn me of how unsafe of a field it is. Physical therapy is my other option, and I like working with the body and all, but I heard you have to take prerequisite classes like chemistry and such and I don’t like that kind of stuff. Now, I heard physical therapy is a safer field, but the rules are changing a bit and people studying physical therapy are encouraged to go for their DPT (Doctor of physical therapy)..so can anyone help me with any knowledge of either psych careers and physical therapy careers
I am employed full-time and have a BS Biology with a good GPA from a top college and have clerical, technical writing, and customer service experience. The problem is I have had too many jobs and no clear direction. If I get a 4.0 in the A.S. program, will I even get calls for interviews? I know there is great demand in this field. I thought of writing a career-change resume that would highlight my hospital volunteering experience, my experience dealing with at-risk students, and my scientific writing skills, as well as my health-related background. Do you think this strategy will work? I had a problem with tardiness before, too, but not recently.
I need to summarize this paragraph and don’t know how. Just started school after 17 years of break and don’t remember ever summarizing any article. Never had to do any in bilingual classes. Please help!!
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that leads to the breakdown of the cartilage in joints. In people with osteoarthritis, exercise helps maintain good joint health, manage symptoms and prevent functional decline. But studies have shown that the benefits of a structured exercise program are short-lived. The beneficial effects usually fade soon after participation in the program ends. The occupational therapy program in this study was designed to educate osteoarthritis patients about joint protection, proper body mechanisms, activity pacing, and environmental barriers. The participants of the current study were divided into two groups. The first group participated in a structured exercise program and the occupational therapy program. The second group participated in the same exercise program, but received health education in place of the occupational therapy. Only the group that engaged in occupational therapy increased the intensity of
physical activity at the end of the study.
This question is for the people who work in the field of physical therapy assistant or occupational therapy assistant. Which career pays more and have more job needs? Also, feel free to offer some insight to either career.
I attend a small liberal arts college known for high acceptance rates into medical school however I am not doing exceptionally well, which is what is required for med school. It is extremely expensive and I am paying for my own education. I have the option of transferring to a school with a lot more career oriented options such as physical and occupational therapy and other health professions. From there I would like to pursue a career then apply to med school. Is it really worth it to stay at a school were my gpa is ok and has the potential of getting worse in comparison to somewhere cheaper where I know I can maintain a better one? Should i salvage my gpa while I can?
Last May we signed an IEP for my daughter giving her 3.5 hours of special instruction per day to be delivered by a special-ed teacher or a parapro.
They had in their documents, and knew very well at the time that my daughter does not arrive at school until noon on Tuesdays because she has physical and occupational therapy. She has had this schedule for the past two school years. They also have documented that it is doctor ordered and must occur in the morning, early in the week (She is hypotonic).
We called another IEP last week to adjust her goals and the Director of Special Education of the county was sitting at the table when we arrived (ambush?) and proceeded to inform us that, by law, the school did not have to provide her service hours on Tuesdays because we “choose” to take her out of school. So she will not receive any services on Tuesday (even after she arrives!) and we have been told we are free to take her work home and teach it ourselves (which is what we did all last year).
I fail to see how we “choose” it when it is doctor ordered and related to one of her disabilities.
I asked him to cite the law for me which he hasn’t done yet.
How do I fight this??? I don’t want my child missing 20% of her education. Thanks for your help!
P.S. The school doesn’t provide her PT/OT because it is not educationally necessary. So we get it done privately. Again, it is doctor ordered.
