Finding Motivation as a DotCom Therapist

Motivation; the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

We have all been there, asking ourselves "How am I going to motivate my student(s) during speech and language therapy?” And we all know that if our student isn’t motivated to do the work, we face the possibility of little to no progress being made.

So can the same hold true for us as therapists?  

Can we face the possibility of seeing little to no progress if not motivated?   


Since we know motivation can be an issue, I have found that as a DotCom Therapist, I have unique avenues to help take me from the land of unmotivation to the land where progress and efficiency reign supreme.

Below, I share the four things that have inspired me to be productive in new ways since joining DCT.

Number 1:  Family Time. For me, it’s important to be in control of my work life balance when possible. As a therapist with DCT, I have the flexibility I need to spend time with my family. Being the director of my own life motivates me to use my time at work as effectively as possible, making me a better therapist, wife, mother, etc.  

Number 2: Quality Service Provision. I wholeheartedly believe I am serving as a therapist with DCT in a capacity far greater than myself. The need for services to be provided to everyone, everywhere is vividly apparent to me and I am motivated to be a part of the revolution to make it happen.  

Number 3:  Perfection. (To be honest, I haven’t met too many speech-language pathologists who don’t strive for perfection in all they do; it’s just our way). I want to perform at the highest level possible, so I am consistently motivated to learn and grow in my profession in order to provide outstanding services to my students.  

Number 4:  Success. Everything I listed before culminates into one of the most significant motivating factors for me - that light bulb moment you see on a child’s face when they "get it,” or the bashful smile of pride that spreads across their face that is so contagious you can’t help grinning from ear to ear yourself.  

I have found that prioritizing the things that are most important to me motivates me to make progress to be an incredible therapist. Whether it’s how you want to spend or time or what you love best about your therapy sessions, take time to sit down and find what motivates YOU so that you have something to work from when those moments of unmotivation sneak up.
