I am leaving for conference this Tuesday! I can’t believe it is already here…
I am going early because I am the ASD rep for my school, so I have to attend meetings Tuesday afternoon and all day Wednesday. Luckily, OT student Brooke is the ASD alternate and she will be going with me! Also – OT student Kristin Davis, who was recently elected to be the ASD Steering Committee Student Representative to the RA, will be there early for the meetings as well.
Kristin, Brooke, and I are presenting a poster together on Friday from 3:00-5:00, so come check us out if you are going to be there! Our poster is titled “Utilizing the Center on the Developing Child to Promote Evidenced-Based Occupational Therapy in Early Childhood.”
I am excited to attend my blog guru, Karen’s educational session on OT and social media! I wish I had had more time to look at other sessions I want to go to beforehand, but I guess I will just have to plan as I go with the packet they handout when I get there. I tried looking at the website a few times, but just got overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information and figured I would just play it by ear. At least this year I know a little bit more about what I am interested in.
I am also planning to attend students un-conferenced – didn’t even know this existed last year!
I got most of my packing done today – it was tough… I hate packing. The weather there is supposed to be in the 30s-60s which means I had to find all of my winter clothing again… I have been enjoying nice, sunny, 85 degree weather here Nola for quite some time.
Looking forward to the next week – will share more info when I get back!
In the meantime, please enjoy this image that OT student E shared with our class awhile back… I think it ties in nicely with the cover of OT Practice this month on being an OT superhero!
