Meet DrOT Student, Belinda Anderson, MS, OTR/L
My OT Practice at Present:
I am working to develop some type of protocol, e.g.,
- Piece of equipment
...to help infants and toddlers regulate their sensory processing system, so that they may play, interact, and engage in self-help, sleep, and rest activities.
Why I Chose GSU:
I am so glad that my suggestion to develop a program for those of us who are already occupational therapists—rather than an entry-level doctorate—came into reality. To me it was a sign from above.
I have been searching for a doctorate level program, but really wanted to do it in occupational therapy. GSU is the perfect place to study.
With the DrOT Degree I Plan to:
I have been a follower of GSU professor Dr. Beth Cada since I was a student at Rush University.
Beth is a natural teacher, motivator, and friend. When she was a department manager at the hospital, Dr. Catherine Brady would often help the Rush students. I did my first co-teaching at Chicago State University with Dr. Melanie Ellexson. I was on GSU’s ad hoc committee concerning the development of a doctorate program. These women are my heroes.
