#otalk @baines_georgina you might want to follow this. Assistive technology chat 🙌🏾
Emma Taylor @effnol
Hi all. Keen to chat as I work as an additive technologist in the private sector #OTalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@effnol yes it can be very addictive! #OTalk
Paediatric OT @OT_south
Here we go....Question 1. What is current practice in your area? How are people identified as needing EAT (electronics assistive tech such as a single switch to turn on TV)? #OTalk
Steve Wiseman @SWisemanAssocs
@OTalk_ Hi! I'm Steve Wiseman, assitive technologist, tho' not an OT! #OTalk
Emma Taylor @effnol
Or even an assistive technologist!
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
Am sure this will be a popular topic @OT_south #OTalk

@SWisemanAssocs welcome to #OTalk great to have you join us this evening
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 1....
Emma Taylor @effnol
I find it depends on if a clinician has an awareness of tech #otalk
will wade @willwade
@OT_south #OTalk q1. “Local” services (Community OT, SLT, Physio, Schools, Charities) *may* identify individuals who need some kind of eAT - but not always. Problem is awareness of both whats possible - and their role (e.g. SLT/OTs being aware). The next prob is where they turn to
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@OT_south #otalk we have recently had some folks on a pilot. Sensors in homes help to monitor movement around the home. On doors, cupboards fridge. Something similar to just checking. I’ve not personally had a client with this but heard about it.
Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
@OT_south Like to start with a good ‘PEO’ approach, this leads to thinking about physical environment, access points, what occupation need, want and has to do #OTalk
will wade @willwade
@sherlynmelody @OT_south #OTalk - is that part of a wider research program? For a particular client Group? Sounds interesting
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@effnol #otalk that’s very true. I’m late to the tech party never knew the use of Alexa till I met a lady with Parkinson who spoke to Alexa telling her to do things around the house.
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
We're very lucky @Childrens_Trust to have an in house MDT for AT so assessments and use of AT during rehab & at school is growing all of the time but do find challenges in getting provision for d/c #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OT_south A1. Me will be geriatrics. I have occasionally seen people with such AT's in nursing home settings, but not too common. #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@OT_south I work with autistic children. I identify their EAT needs when I do the initial Interview. This may include using EAT to support communication, using apps to increase independence in ADL, etc #OTalk
Jen scott @jsco100
@OTalk_ There's a definite lack of awareness of what is possible and what equipment is out there, so I agree I don't think it always does get identified #otalk
will wade @willwade
@MelanieBurrough @OT_south Nice. “What” someone “wants” to do is the essence - often amazingly overlooked - in place of what is assumed they want to do #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@OT_south Not sure if that count as EAT?? #OTalk
Lorna Wales @WalesLorna
@OTalk_ Is it always a professional who spots the need or is it sometimes families who comes and asks? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

Lucy Leonard @LucyOTL
@OTalk_ It’s essential to find out the client/therapy goals and find which tech can best fit. But knowledge in this area is essential. Tech is changing so quickly. #otalk
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
Routines based assessment can be useful to look at opportunities for integration of AT across the day as well as relating to specific goals #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Don't forget to include #OTalk folks...
Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
@willwade @OT_south And not always easy to ascertain or understand but we must try and get there when it’s not always obvious #OTalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@willwade @OT_south #otalk I guess it could help with research. As I think other countries use it more. I think it helps with reducing costs, hospital admissions, tracking people’s movements. Toilet use (UTI’s) eating or not, leaving the home. Falls- if someone is not moving around the house - why?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@sherlynmelody @OT_south I am actually keeping an eye on the latest AT, as my parents are aging. I know they don't need them yet, but they might in the future. #otalk

will wade @willwade
@WalesLorna @OTalk_ Great point. Probably more often than is admitted - the family and environment supporting the individual identifying the needs. But maybe not such a bad thing - how we identify motivation is about a team effort. Partic with this client group #OTalk A1.
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@jsco100 @OTalk_ #otalk I would agree!
Paediatric OT @OT_south
#OTalk
Lois Cameron @Lois_Cameron
@willwade @OT_south What would help this lack of awareness of what is possible #otalk? I thought some of the stories/ examples @Comm_Matters study day on topic were really powerful but we need to extend audience This is field where people don’t know what they don’t know.
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
Is low tech often over looked in your area? We do need to keep up to date but much can be achieved with familiar tech as well #OTalk
will wade @willwade
@sherlynmelody @sharontuppenyot @Childrens_Trust Yes! #OTalk :)
JasminOT ⓥ @JasminLaffy
@OTalk_ Hello all! I'm a little late today. #OTalk
Steve Wiseman @SWisemanAssocs
@OTalk_ #Otalk often it is thought of to assist communication rather than environmental control
Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
@93SophieC @OT_south Same @93SophieC we are sometimes limited by knowledge of what may be out there but also what is meaningful for the invdividual rather than thinking about latest technology on the market #OTalk
Jen scott @jsco100
@Lois_Cameron @willwade @OT_south @Comm_Matters Definitely something that needs to be included more in the undergraduate OT curriculum #otalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@SusanGriffiths5 @OT_south #otalk I think it would?! It’s an app and it helps 🤷🏾‍♀️
Emma Taylor @effnol
#otalk yes important to take an holistic approach
will wade @willwade
@OT_south #OTalk - we at @AceCentre are heavier on a CMOP and sometimes MOHO.. Have dabbled with the river.. It kind of works but not personally a fan ;)
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@jsco100 @Lois_Cameron @willwade @OT_south @Comm_Matters or masters if you are talking about US occupational therapists' curriculum. #otalk
Emma Taylor @effnol
Absolutely agree! What are the client goals and if appropriate tech can be a solution #otalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@WalesLorna @OTalk_ #otalk I have had a situation where family made me aware of a neater eater. I’d never heard or seen anything like it. They opened my eyes and educated me 🙌🏾
Paediatric OT @OT_south
@93SophieC what made that client stand out as needing AT as a priority for you @93SophieC #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@jsco100 @Lois_Cameron @willwade @OT_south @Comm_Matters and I also think more OT's should know Facebook groups such as Tech4OT or AT4OT. #otalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@OT_south It’s only because I’ve had an EAT placement that I’m aware I definitely think there needs to be more awareness. #OTalk
Lois Cameron @Lois_Cameron
@MelanieBurrough @willwade @OT_south This was big theme @Comm_Matters study day Getting that right is hard & takes time particularly if needs are complex #otalk #easytoassume
will wade @willwade
@sharontuppenyot Totally Sharon. I spend probably 20% of my time ditching the fancy stuff and going through Low-tech/Light-tech solutions - I think the same goes for my colleagues if not greater at @acecentre #OTalk
Zoe Haddock @ZoeHaddock
@OT_south Directly linked to participation - student, family, teacher and/or therapist may all identify opportunities for potential participation - EAT at its best can be the key to unlocking this potential! #OTalk

Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@sherlynmelody @OT_south That’s my thinking! I also recommend smart watches like the wobbl watch where reminders can be set I.e. to go to the toilet, to eat, etc. Smart water bottles also great for those that need prompts to drink throughout the day #OTalk

Paediatric OT @OT_south

Zoe Haddock @ZoeHaddock
@OT_south @MelanieBurrough In a community setting I had scant knowledge or experience and often felt frustrated at what little I could offer. Working in a special school has been a wonderful opportunity to explore the range of EAT available - this knowledge needs to be shared though #OTalk
Jen scott @jsco100
@Lois_Cameron @willwade @OT_south @Comm_Matters Very little I think. I've offered to go out and talk at several of our local universities, but have had little interest? Maybe they're just sticking to what they know? #otalk
Paediatric OT @OT_south
@ZoeHaddock what got you into AT @ZoeHaddock? did you hear about it as an undergrad or a chance meeting with a forward thinking OT?#OTalk

Paediatric OT @OT_south
@jsco100 @Lois_Cameron @willwade @Comm_Matters ☹️How can we get #AT higher on agenda and raise awareness from the beginning? #OTalk
Lois Cameron @Lois_Cameron
@willwade @OT_south @Comm_Matters @theRCOT @BillWongOT Great idea! Maybe could be a bit of a joint promotion with @RCSLT too as a lot of overlap and common aims The communicative potential created through increasing control, independence & occupation is huge We all need to work together to get message out #OTalk

Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
@ZoeHaddock @OT_south Totally agree. @Childrens_Trust School @OT_south have taught me so much about #AT in many different situations. I wish there was more available during #OT training and post grad level #OTalk
Jen scott @jsco100
@ZoeHaddock @OT_south @MelanieBurrough Agree. Think there's lots of knowledge within special schools on this, but little in the OT community in general #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@effnol absolutely. What's the point of suggesting an expensive piece of AT for a family who barely is able to make end's meet? #otalk
Amanda White @ajciliaOT
@OT_south #OTalk I work in acute hospital, we identify needs and can refer in to Assistive Tech community team
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot

@OT_south #OTalk we use the CMOPe as a frame work to assessment (if it fits with the patient), follow the #OT process and compete functional assessment - then move on to standardised assessments as appropriate. Is this what you mean?

Emma Taylor @effnol
In my work I find it is lack of commitment from others eg family, teachers, support workers #talk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@OT_south Biggest barrier as mentioned by others is the cost of EAT #Otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OT_south A3. Affordability will be a crucial one. I remembered when I did a presentation on autism apps in Croatia, they told me I need to search for ones that are under $15 USD! Another one that maybe overlooked- language options. #otalk

@MelanieBurrough @willwade @BillWongOT @ZoeHaddock @OT_south @Childrens_Trust @oxford_brookes @Bruneluni @OTatBrunel @MellissaPrunty @DunfordCarolyn I'm going to be plugging this idea with colleagues. So far not seen much evidence of EAT in the curriculum for undergrads, a collaboration would be fab #otalk

Potential barriers: training, resources, outside agency waiting lists...is #AssistiveTech ever an OT service priority?does it feature in your Business Plan? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OT_south I say language because it can come into play in my neck of the woods. Let's say you get an immigrant family where the primary caregivers have little or no understanding of English and their native language is unavailable? How are they going to help w/ their loved ones? #otalk

@OT_south A3. #OTalk Cog disabilities is a really big area needing more research, assessment tools and support. We do use @TalkingMats extensively - particularly with adults - but do lean on a wealth of “research” around best practice

Paediatric OT @OT_south
@dyspraxicot do you see this when working with adults and #CYPF? is there a difference? #OTalk I have seen this also, people like to be helpful &intervene too much where AT could shift the control to the individual

@OT_south #otalk I've not seen this model before - thank you for sharing

@BillWongOT @OT_south Language - and multiple languages in a family is a problem - (NB: *Slight plug* we have https://t.co/PFLiX8Wv9F - partly dealing with this) #OTalk

@ajciliaOT @OT_south Gary Kielhofner wouldn’t see this as a Model of course.. but lets not go there.. ;) #OTalk
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
Internet connection v disrupted.. so not keeping up! Barrier - EAT isn't always quicker than being 'done to' & still may need some support, reduce dependence doesn't always equal full independence, can be harder to embed if this is the case #OTalk
Amanda White @ajciliaOT
@OTalk_ #OTalk information on what is available in the community. Not knowing is a barrier.
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@LucyOTL @SammyRandallOT @OT_south #otalk acronyms 😩 what does this mean @SammyRandallOT
Lois Cameron @Lois_Cameron
@effnol Is that a lack of commitment or is it sometimes a lack of understanding of family dynamics & pressures. Remember a mum complaining that the SLT wanted her to encourage #augcomm use when her child was choosing his yogurt when eye pointing was much quicker & easier #otalk
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
is it in your service specification - often just in SLT if mentioned at all @OT_south #OTalk. Need to articulate the OT role
Paediatric OT @OT_south
@willwade @TalkingMats good at establishing inital likes/dislikes/motivators but do we continue to explore and monitor this for #PMLD maybe there is an activity just around the corner that is their dream hobbie?! @TalkingMats works well with some but what about others with more complex needs? #OTalk
will wade @willwade
@OT_south A3.. One thing we struggle with - when it comes to skill development of an access is constantly making resources. We use a lot of @InclusiveTechUK products (as well as @TobiiDynavox and @LiberatorLtd solutions) - but making motivating pages/resources takes time.. #OTalk
Zoe Haddock @ZoeHaddock
@BillWongOT @OT_south Interestingly families often ask for advice about age appropriate AT suggestions for birthday and Christmas presents. I always think I should put together a ‘catalogue’ of ideas but never quite get around to it #OTalk
Amanda White @ajciliaOT
@OT_south A3: #Otalk sometimes therapist not having knowledge of EAT is a barrier.
Paediatric OT @OT_south
@willwade @InclusiveTechUK @TobiiDynavox @LiberatorLtd personalising resources takes time but worth it, better outcomes #OTalk

@OT_south ..For @ThinkSmartbox Grid3 we recently made https://t.co/kMEbDnpIz5 - this which makes custom pages to help people assess and develop early access skills using motivating topics.. maybe of use to others! #OTalk

@Lois_Cameron Often a combination. As @sharontuppenyot said it takes longer to use EAT as opposed to doing for #otalk Sometimes it’s about them not recognising the person is just that - a person

Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
Definitely- identify the need, outcome and recommend in provision, make sure #AsstiveTech is not overlooked #SEND @CypfSbot #sbot #OTalk
Zoe Haddock @ZoeHaddock
@effnol @OT_south Lack of commitment, lack of understanding, lack of confidence??? So many things to address - but it is a reality check... do you purchase something expensive if it’s not likely to get used no matter how great it is!? #OTalk @OT_south
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk *** 5 minute WARNInG *** In the final few minutes of the chat... What are your take away thoughts? Have you got an action list from the chat? What are you CPD goals in relation to EAT? or #OTalk https://t.co/ys2k7jNPtT
JasminOT ⓥ @JasminLaffy
@OT_south Like so many have said cost is a big factor. Also having the carers on board to allow time for the EAT to be learnt and practiced #OTalk
Paediatric OT @OT_south
Next steps...Scoping project-plot what is currently happening in UK? Guidelines? #OTalk
Lois Cameron @Lois_Cameron
@OT_south @willwade @TalkingMats TM requires symbolic understanding so won’t work for all but could it be used as a way of having an effective conversation to get perspectives with the team around the person ? These perspectives freq. differ & capturing views visually enables people to see differ views #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OT_south first half of the question- we should be on the forefront in designing the apps or assistive technology that can help our patients! We should either be on design teams or be the person in charge of the overall design. second half- we should be better community partners. #otalk
Jen scott @jsco100
@OT_south One barrier being that many individuals with significant cognitive disabilities don't fall in spec for many EAT services #otalk
Lucy Leonard @LucyOTL
@OT_south Knowledge has to be across all clinical areas so health professionals know when to refer on. I wonder how many people are our there that would benefit from EAT #OTalk
Paediatric OT @OT_south
Next steps...raising awareness? Training Days? #OTalk
Sharon Tuppeny @sharontuppenyot
potential for facilitating play with more than just switch activated toys - maybe an app similar to CP toys @ZoeHaddock @OT_south #OTalk

will wade @willwade
@OT_south #Otalk A5. Thats tough. I do think @AT_APPG in the UK is leading to some solutions on this - but it does need more parties getting on board to figure the answer out (hint hint @theRCOT @RCSLT @NHSEngland and others.. )
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@ZoeHaddock @OT_south #otalk client centred practice, with carer support, surely that would mean it would be used?!
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@OT_south Totally agree! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@dyspraxicot @OT_south on mandatory lectures- maybe you should get in the running in determining the curriculum standards at the national level in the UK... ala USA in ACOTE. #otalk
Zoe Haddock @ZoeHaddock
@sharontuppenyot @OT_south Absolutely - this would be great. I have tried CP toys but it doesn’t cover the older age range (it’s been a while since I checked)? #OTalk @OT_south
Jen scott @jsco100
@OT_south Incorporating more EAT awareness raising on all levels: universities, conferences etc. The need is to target those that don't know that they don't know. Not those with an interest in AT already! #otalk
Melanie Burrough @MelanieBurrough
@OT_south @keenCOTA have suggested affordable solutions using infrared technologies. Also linked with @MERUcharity to switch adapt everyday toys/ utensils #OTalk

@OTalk_ I found the chat really interesting even though I didn't have a lot to contribute based on my current role; I'd like to look more into apps (e.g. reminder apps for helping with executive dysfunction) but would have to see what the people I work with actually want first 😊 #OTalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody

@LucyOTL @dyspraxicot @OT_south This is sparking a lot of thoughts in my head .. I wonder if we (https://t.co/at11vLk4MA) should co-ordinate something with @theRCOT @RCOT_CYPF - for people willing to do this - and do a white paper on the role of eAT in OT.. #OTAlk
