TESTIMONIALS

Clare, with this course you've really set the industry standard. I've completed just about every course on FCA for OT's out there and this is by far the most in-depth, presented in such a systematic and clear way - the effort you've put into making this course is abundantly clear, and honestly I'm so grateful that you've created this to kindly share with your professional network. This course gets a solid 5/5 for me - thank you so so much! :)


I have just completed your FCA course and found it so beneficial and useful (and just in the nick of time for registration). I recently returned to work (post mat leave) to a new job with a mixed caseload and found the NDIS side of things a bit daunting. All of my experience has been in aged care (community, residential and OPMH) so NDIS was completely new to me. This has greatly helped with clarity around what is expected and required in the reports (especially in regards to terminology used and layout, etc)- so thank you!


This course was a fantastic introduction to working as an OT within the NDIS. I feel confident now to see clients and I feel both confident and comfortable with where to access further information, support and supervision as needed. Thank you Clare!


I found this course to be helpful and easy to follow. It has given me much more confidence when approaching FCAs.


The Functional Capacity Assessment course was fantastic. It provided valuable insights and helped me acquire new skills that I will be able to use when writing FCAs in the future.


I have just completed your OT FCA guide course and am emailing to say thankyou for such a great course!   I have really enjoyed working through the modules and found it a great way to consolidate my own learning through my first year of OT and fill in any gaps.
