First time applicant here wondering how important shadowing experience is for applications? I have several hundred hours working with children on the autism spectrum and socializing with stroke survivors, but no direct experience observing an OT and I'm worried that this will seriously impact my chances of being admitted to an OT program - can anyone offer any insight on this?

Hey! I am a first year at Queen’s OT & had zero shadowing experience before applying! However I had experience working with both children & adults with disabilities through work, school, & volunteer positions. I think direct shadowing experience is of course helpful, but definitely not a requirement. Hope that helps, good luck!
