@erinnnnn14 we run a 4 week summer program focused 100% on job skill development in manufacturing setting. It works!! #OTalk

@erinnnnn14 I heard her speak 7 years ago. Had my chances since then, but no time. #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@erinnnnn14 @Lauren_OT I've always found it hard to get paid employment placements. Volunteer much easier depends on support required #otalk

@erinnnnn14 I was lucky to hear Steven Shore speak a couple months ago at AOTA too. #otalk
Erin H @erinnnn14_OT
@Lauren_OT I've heard work placements are reducing (even voluntary) so getting paid work is v. difficult #OTalk
Lauren @Lauren_OT
@OTalk_ @erinnnnn14 One of the other OTs was doing an IPS pilot / project which was going very well in the MH stream #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@erinnnnn14 If it is from charity perspective, it is how well you fit into overall budget from program perspective. #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@erinnnnn14 i think sometimes people might feel more secure in paid work, also more important/respected if they hold a paid position #otalk
Erin H @erinnnn14_OT
@Claire_OT_ Do you feel both provide this or is there more potential with paid work? #otalk
SarahBarkerOT @smb1607
@erinnnnn14 I guess for many it's the difference between whether or not it feels like a 'real' job #otalk
JBOT - Jo Southall @JBOccyTherapy
@erinnnnn14 I think both can be variable. My voluntary role has CPD, supervision, team meetings, events and more. Work I'm largely on my own! #OTalk
Erin H @erinnnn14_OT
@Lauren_OT @OTalk_ Was this recently, Lauren? How was it received? #otalk
Lauren @Lauren_OT

@erinnnnn14 Self-esteem, being able to say they're employed, often feels more valued by society than voluntary role #otalk

In my exper outcome can b different. Volunteer - giving back, learning skills. Paid - sense of value, productive #otalk https://t.co/lcPUr8Mvm6

@JBOccyTherapy Really interesting. As there are a lot of similarities between both expect payment. But is money a large aspect of work? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@jessica_swilson I say no carryover because I sometimes struggle at the common adage- one shot at a time! I think 2-3 shots in ahead sometimes. 😛 #otalk

@erinnnnn14 @OTalk_ This is a massive problem. Our welfare system needs to change to meet needs of people with LD in accessing employment #OTalk

There is also no uk government support for this. So person could slow down service eg sandwich making and be bullied #otalk @margaretOT360 https://t.co/K2Zq3UdUxD

@JBOccyTherapy Is there something in 'managing the unknown' as a skill to support and teach with service users? #OTalk
