It's a never-ending cycle...
The point being, that you have wasted all that time preparing homework and now you're discouraged because it wasn’t completed and you're concerned that it will reflect poorly on your ability as a therapist.
This cycle never ends and places so much added stress on you and your ability to be the STELLAR therapist that you are. Finally, it’s Friday and you think "Yay!" But then quickly realize that part of your weekend will be time spent preparing more client homework.
You say to yourself, "I love these kids and this is a sacrifice I’m willing to take" but in the meantime, you never have time for yourself and even less time with your own family because of all this extra work that you do for the kids and families that you care about.
Luckily for them, we are passionate about speech therapy and we live for progress and helping kids reach their communication goals.
