Grad school update

4th year in the doc program and I still canโ€™t believe Iโ€™m nearing the finish line. I have one more year of classes and then off to my Pre-doc internship! This semester has been so busy. Itโ€™s been my busiest yet. Iโ€™m finishing up my hours for NCSP and LSSP licensure this semester by splitting my time between a Charter School and our programโ€™s Assessment Center. My case load consists of 2 academic interventions, behavior intervention, and developing a therapy group for children of divorced parents at the Charter school. I have 3 clients from the Assessment clinic, all of which were referred for ADHD assessment. Iโ€™m doing a full Psychoeducational evaluation on all 3. After this semester Iโ€™ll have a good 1400 hours, well above the minimum requirements for licensure as an LSSP and NCSP.

In addition, to internship Iโ€™m taking 3 classes, Multivariate Statistics, Severe Disabilities and Autism. Also starting on my dissertation. Ughโ€ฆis it weird that I hate doing research? Well, starting it. I have so many ideas and I need to narrow it down. Also, comprehensives are next month. Oh joy!

I also work! Starting up some grants to fund our assessment clinic, collaborating on 4 papers for publication, and presenting at conferences. Iโ€™m also a lead instructor in our Basic Skills clinic. Like I said, busy yaโ€™ll!

Yaโ€™ll send good vibes my way! Iโ€™m tiredโ€ฆlol.
