Grasping a clinical placement

Today was my most successful day at my school placement thus far. The sessions were far from perfect, as I’m still learning how to balance behavior management, data collection, and structure within sessions. On top of that, I’m trying to remember to build relationships with my students. It’s a lot to keep in mind during a half hour session! Despite my stumbles today, I was comfortable in my sessions thanks to spending plenty of time the couple of days before thinking through the sessions and finding the materials beforehand. It was the most I had spent on planning an entire school day up to this point. Being able to manage the sessions today without my supervisor and without getting frustrated and stuck within a session was a good ego boost in my clinical training. I give myself a HUGE pat on the back!
