    7 Things You Need to Know About the New NBCOT Practice Analysis

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jan 30, 2019 11:48:39 AM

    With experts Rosanne DiZazzo-Miller and Fredrick D. Pociask

    Every few years the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) publishes an executive summary of a Practice Analysis to ensure that Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR) exams cover content relevant to practicing therapists. In addition to any changes to the content of the OTR exam, they may also make changes to the percentage of the exam that is dedicated to each domain area. Beginning in 2019, the NBCOT board OTR exam will include these changes. The good news is our textbook, Preparing for the Occupational Therapy National Board Exam: 45 Days and Counting, included our own focus groups and interviews, including: students who passed the NBCOT exam on the first attempt, students who had to repeat the exam, and had currently practicing senior level occupational therapists to construct the majority of chapter content. Therefore, the content presented in the 45 Days textbook remains in very good alignment with the changes included in the 2018 executive summary. The free PDF of the 2018 ‘Practice Analysis of the Occupational Therapist Registered Executive Summary’ can be found here.

    Meet Ann Kummer, Author of Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Conditions

    Posted by Michael Sullivan on Jul 24, 2018 4:35:36 PM

     

    What prompted you to originally write Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Conditions: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management?

    AK: In 1998, I started teaching the Cleft Palate/Craniofacial Course at the University of Cincinnati. As I was preparing my PowerPoints, test bank, and lectures, I was frustrated because the only textbook available simply focused on theories and research studies and was not clinically focused; therefore, not suitable for my students. Because I am a passionate clinician and have a great deal of practical clinical experience with this population, I decided to write a practical book for students and practicing clinicians alike. My goal was and continues to be, sharing with students what I had learned through years of experience working in the clinics exclusively with patients with cleft palate and craniofacial conditions.

    How have you seen the field grow and change during your time as Senior Director, Division of Speech-Language Pathology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center?
