Reveal transcript

So I’m an occupational therapist and I work with children that have got difficulties with their coordination skills maybe their handwriting they might have dyspraxia they might have autism or they might have attention deficit disorder and I support children by helping their parents know how to help them by working directly with them and also by helping schools know how best to support these children with their learning and also with their independent skills.  At the moment I mostly work in schools so I’m funded by the schools paying sort of my fees to go in as a private therapist and I’ve also done a huge amount of work with parents who’ve also then paid for their therapy and also some work with the local education authorities who’ve been paying those fees for those children to get their help and support.  My plan at the moment is a new business model though and I’m taking my experience online and I’m hoping to be able to provide parents with training and also therapy programs using video based online model and my hope is that the parents and schools will be able to sort of buy that information so that the teachers and themselves can watch it and that by learning from me they can help their children.  At the moment I don’t really advertise so it’s mostly word of mouth and I also do a little bit of content on my website and I’m hoping that is going to help the online arm grow.
