Still Looking for a Fulfilling Online Therapy Career?

Posted by Danielle Levesque | Nov 24, 2015 2:55:06 PM


“There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life.”

-Mary Rose McGeady 

The Average Person Spends 90,000 Hours at Work Over Their Lifetime

90,000 hours. That’s more than 10 full years. To put it into perspective, the average person spends around 38,000 hours over a lifetime caring for his or her children and only around 3,600 hours volunteering. All of these activities can be deeply rewarding, but we would be remiss to overlook the one that dominates such a large portion of our time, our career.

As a Speech-Language Pathologist or Occupational Therapist you are an active participant in a fulfilling and purposeful career field. You spend meaningful time helping people to communicate functionally and successfully in society, and that is no small feat. But do you actually feel the difference you’re making? Or do you instead find yourself stressed, overworked, and overtired? Do you wish you could spend less time driving, stuck in meetings, and reporting? Perhaps a career as an online SLP or online OT can help give you the balance you need.

Can a robot REALLY teach my students?

Posted by TinyEYE | May 27, 2014 11:55:00 AM

 

This is a picture we’ve held in our minds for over a decade. Some of us picture the classic TV show “The Jetsons” where Elroy’s class is taught by a robot. Others picture the scene from “The Matrix”, where upon downloading the information into his mind, Keanu Reeves announces “I know Kung Fu!” But aside from these futuristic examples, our real-life experience with robots has been limited to our household appliances and remote-control cars.

So, why can these robots teach our children where none could before? Simple. They aren’t just robots.

4 Common Misconceptions of Online Therapy: Busted

Posted by TinyEYE | Apr 11, 2014 11:49:00 AM

With the increased adoption of technology within schools across North America, it leaves one to wonder how this is impacting our youth. It seems that everywhere we turn there’s no getting away from there is a new technology. Like it or not, the future is here…along with the list of critics opposed to this shift. For those who have already opened their doors to online therapy (also known as telepractice), the ability to serve students with speech and occupational therapy disorders has shone through as paramount. It is our hope that the Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy community become educated on the vast benefits this new form of delivery provides through the use of traditional telepractice, as well as the next generation of telepractice in introducing robot doubles to the classroom.

Online Occupational Therapy: What It Is and What It Is Not

Online Occupational Therapy:  
What It Is and
 What It Is Not

Have you ever imagined how amazing you could be if only...?  For instance, if only you had a certain tool, extra time, more support, or a magic wand...then you could really make a difference.  

The real magic wand here is called access.  Access is our connection between a wish and amazing.  Whether you are a professional or a student, having access to tools and support can be life changing.  

At TinyEYE, our online occupational therapists and online speech-language pathologists give our schools consistent access to outstanding therapy services for educators, caregivers, and students.  When you recognize the benefit that our presence has brought to schools, imagine the tragedy that our absence would have on student outcomes. Today, all children can have equal access (or a magic wand) through our award winning, virtual therapy services innovations.  To further explore how our specially trained therapy team serves our students in need of occupational therapy support, I have highlighted key points about what online OT is, and what it is not:
