What books or materials will I need for this course?
Participants will use one copy of the Seeing My Time workbook during the webinar sessions and will also need a copy of Seeing My Time – Instructor’s Manual for reference.
Participants will also need a copy of the Seeing My Time workbook for each of your practice clients. If a practice client is child or adolescent, at least one parent must participant in practice sessions as well and each participant will need their own copy of the workbook.
We offer current course participants 10% off all book purchases. When you register for the course, we will email you a discount code.
During a few classes (and their corresponding practice sessions) you will also need post-it flags, small standard post-it notes, and highlighter pens. We recommend having a dry-erase board to use during your practice sessions, but this is optional. We will let you know when you will need these additional resources.
Can I get CEUs for this course?
This course provides 10 contact hours that many educators and other professionals have used toward their continuing education requirements. However, if you are interested in getting CEUs for this course, please plan ahead and check with your professional organization in advance to make sure that you submit all necessary paperwork. You will be provided with a certificate documenting your completion of the course. It is then your responsibility to send the certificate and other necessary documentation to your accrediting organization.
How do I find a practice client?
Your practice client should be someone aged 10 through 110 who is willing to meet with you for eight, weekly, one-hour sessions starting the week following your second class session. This is not a rigid schedule – if it is easier for you to start a little early or late or meet twice in one week, that is not a problem. If your primary practice client is a child or adolescent (not yet in college or living alone), then it is essential that at least one parent is willing to attend and participate in the sessions as well.
Seeing My Time can be a powerful tool for supporting individuals struggling with executive function challenges associated with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and TBI, but it is also very valuable for any individual experiencing a life transition (middle school to high school, high school to college, changing jobs, having a child), or someone who simply want to think more consciously about how they use their time. Past clients or students, family friends, and family members can all make an excellent practice client.
You are responsible for finding a practice client. Meeting regularly with a practice client is a requirement of this course.
What if I need to miss a class?
Don’t worry! All the webinar sessions will be recorded and available to you in case you miss a class or want to review the lecture. However, we request that you participate in at least six of the webinars live. We don’t want you to miss your chance to share and ask questions.
How exactly does the webinar work? Do I need special technology?
The webinars are very user-friendly and interactive. You will require a reasonably fast internet connection and a computer or tablet with speakers, a microphone and (optional) a camera. If your computer does not have built-in speakers and microphone, I recommend you buy a USB headset with attached microphone. This can also be a good choice if you will be attending the webinars from a noisy, distracting location.
Each week we will send you an email before class with simple instructions to enter the webinar “classroom.” You will have a chance to practice with the technology before the class begins. Inside the “classroom” you will be able to see and hear the instructor and your classmates. When the instructor is lecturing, you will see a slideshow and your microphone will be muted to avoid excessive background noise. There will be ample opportunities to stop and ask questions.
What is your refund policy?
We offer a full refund to participants who withdraw prior to the first day of the course. Refunds up to the third class will be prorated. We do not offer refunds after the third session. We can only offer continuing education credits to individuals who complete all of the course requirements.
What happens if a session has to be cancelled?
In the unlikely event that the course must be cancelled in part or in whole, participants will be informed by emails as promptly as possible. Any cancelled session will be rescheduled and a recording of the session will be made available to individuals unable to attend. If, due to extraordinary circumstances, the course is cancelled entirely, participants will receive a full and prompt refund.
