The reason I keep on organizing TEDx events with invited speakers- I want OT/OTA students and practitioners to rethink what is possible in #otadvocacy . I want the rest of OT community to start making their first big boy/girl step in the organizing space.
Sorcha Dunne Katie Moffat (She/Her) #otalk , OT’s would be very valuable in designing curriculum, especially in special needs schools.
deb_OT Katie Moffat (She/Her) #OTalk Ruth Hawley (she/her) Yes, working with and explaining occupation and sensory impact specifically relating to occupation with clear examples of a child/children they know can be very helpful - but often don’t have time in current ‘fire fighting’ situation in children’s OT! #OTalk
Leah Hammond Katie Moffat (She/Her) Yes yes yes!!! We could have such an impact if involved in built environment #OTalk
Katie Moffat (She/Her) Pros -definitely the ability to inform others around them of potential triggers. Educate staff of what may be challenging and either adapt of remove the barrier to participation. Also editing in real time as things change. What may be a challenge 1 week may not be another #otalk
Katie Moffat (She/Her) NHS Tayside Child Health Occupational Therapy Environmental factors are a HUGE part of my day. From standing desks to orientation of desk in relation to the window/door. Carpet be hard floor, sound proofing & temperature the list goes on!! #otalk
deb_OT #OTalk Katie Moffat (She/Her) Ruth Hawley (she/her) Us too - so many referrals mentioning ‘sensory’ with no indication of occupation & impact on daily life and also high levels of expectation re what we can provide which is not possible with stretched service #OTalk
Katie Moffat (She/Her) NHS Tayside Child Health Occupational Therapy Sensory systems are one part of a comprehensive assessment of occupational participation. When considered in this broader assessment they could impact all aspects. #otalk
