@OTalk_ Conference #4 for me in 2019! Can’t believe last month just went by so quickly! #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Lets get started with question 1: Do you engage with or participate in any occupations that may not be deemed as “age appropriate”? In addition to #Lego building I (@Kirstie_OT) also play @PokemonGoApp. #OTalk https://t.co/m4X2cJvvGa
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OTalk_ Hello! I'm at my parents' house for the evening so I'll be multitasking following the chat and watching The Chase with them 😅 #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Or maybe there are some you would like to engage in? #OTalk
Tori OT @Tori_Doll_
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp Q1 Response: As a youngster, I always enjoyed gardening. I had an allotment in my early 20s - which could have been perceived as “not age appropriate” based on how different it was compared to what peers my age were doing. I love watching things grow, always have! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp Me listen to a particular Hong Kong radio soap. My mom has always said, “Why are you listening to this? Are you trying to copy mannerism of old people living in Hong Kong?” #otalk https://t.co/o1b1crpABo
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp I crochet (which is associated with people older than me) and I play video games (which is associated with people younger than me) so I'm all over the place in terms of age-appropriateness! #OTalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
Ah ok, so rather than an adult engaging in a “childs” occupation, its the other way around. Great perspective. Is this still something you do not @Tori_Doll_? How was your occupation perceived by others? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp On the flip side, I would say I am an older player for Hearthstone. #otalk

@OTalk_ Generally adults and older adults could understand my interest and I was certainly welcomed by the allotment community. Peers did not understand my interest so much! #OTalk

Also as well as age-appropriate activities what the activities that are appropriate for both sexes, our self-care group is actually very popular with males, they enjoy a face mask just as much as a woman #OTalk

This will feed nicely into a question later on 🙌🏻 #Otalk

Question 2: What was your favourite occupation as a child? What did you gain from it? Do you still participate in it now? If not, why not? #OTalk https://t.co/sIQdRhM0Ip
Erica Davis @ezzybezzy1989
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp I also have recently enjoyed cross stitch something I used to think was done by older people but I think any age can enjoy any activity. I'm also 29 and still have a love for unicorns. #otalk
Tori OT @Tori_Doll_
@OTalk_ Q2 Response: Again, gardening. I would spend hours outside with my dad - used to love doing little bits. I was probably more of a hinderance to him than a help. But I enjoyed it, learned lots about sustainability and growing veg! Still love it now! #OTalk

@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp Rugby. Definitely not age appropriate at this age. The odd bit of playstation too. #otalk

This is something ive found acorss the Lego community. Its something that transcends generations and can be enjoyed as a family & supports the building of relationships #Otalk

Absolutely, at what point in our lives do we lose that/let it go? What changes? #Otalk

@OTalk_ Definitely! And it’s a perfect opportunity to grade activity. It can either be around skill acquisition or simply enjoyment #OTalk
Rachel Booth 💚 @OT_rach
I loved make believe play, and was often found, playing out a film or book I enjoyed, often on my own. #otalk I don’t engage in make believe play, now but sometimes I find my imagine going wild, or have ideas I write down, to blog or create a poem about, most don’t get finished

@OTalk_ Reading! I was a complete bookworm as a child and I definitely benefited from it in terms of literacy, creative writing ability, and general knowledge. I don't read as much as I would like at the moment - I suppose there's more distractions in my life as an adult? #OTalk https://t.co/GlG9FUkHP7

@OT_rach Oh me too! My sis, cousins & I would put on plays and productions every Christmas to the ‘grown-ups’... cringe but we loved it #OTalk

Question 3: As OTs we know the importance of meaning in occupation, so does age appropriateness really matter to us? #OTalk https://t.co/sPwH9EL8zA
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ I actually just picked up role playing with a placement student recently. I used that to attack his weaknesses before his more intensive 8-week placement. #otalk
Erica Davis @ezzybezzy1989
I think some people feel it's okay to do role play in training my colleague attended a dementia training session which was very too play. People perceptions are very different many feels it's not the social norm. #otalk
Rachel Booth 💚 @OT_rach
@OTalk_ I love role play. But most people don’t seem to, I always volunteer, and school drama was my favourite subject. I loved the spontaneity been giving a subject and rolling with it, tried amateur dramatics but it was often scripted which wasn’t as enjoyable #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@colourful_ot Oh Matilda 😊 I loved the Twits and Charlie & the chocolate factory #Otalk
Tori OT @Tori_Doll_
@OTalk_ Q3 Response: it’s about exploring what’s meaningful! Age doesn’t come into it, it’s about the individual. We just need to be mindful about HOW the occupation is facilitated/pitched, as opposed to the actual activity itself. #OTalk
Keir Harding @Keirwales
@OTalk_ @margaretOT360 Audiobooks are my go to sleep aid every night (and the long car journeys too). They keep the nasty thoughts away #otalk

@OT_rach @OTalk_ @margaretOT360 I love podcasts! I recently got back into them. I stopped for a while when I was unwell, I couldn't quite focus on them but I've started listening to them on my commute #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Is this the answer? Do we just feel abit self conscious? #Otalk
Janet @janetregan3
@OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @PokemonGoApp I love running. Partly for all the usual age appropriate reasons for a woman in her 40's (stress relief, fitness) but also because I REALLY love splashing through muddy puddles! (and I think it is that freedom& licence to behave like a big kid, that I like most about it!) #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ The radio soap occupation was how I kept up with Hong Kong culture. The Doraemon videos- that was indirectly helping me to keep my Mandarin sharp (since I listen to Mandarin version more) #otalk
Erica Davis @ezzybezzy1989
Age is but a number and we need to remember whats meaningful to me may not be meaningful to someone else. So occupations should be classed as 'age appropriate' they should be person appropriate #otalk
Katherine Swithenbank @katy_maggi
@OTalk_ It’s not about being age appropriate as long as it’s appropriate for the individual then that’s ok #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot

@OTalk_ It's what's important to you that matters rather than age... may just mean they have to be adapted a little with age, rather than you adapting to the activity. #OTalk

Susan Windeatt @mooartdotcom
@OTalk_ #otalk That's an interesting Q. Maybe? I think most OTs would break down the tasks and think about individual needs when running groups. However I've seen some activity coordinators/groups also do this brilliantly whilst others maybe wouldn't think about it automatically.

RT @Kirstie_OT: I think I may have just created a community of tag playing, den building, roller blading, axe throwing Ninja OTs? 😂 Thanks…

@colourful_ot @OTalk_ @Keirwales Something I still do #OTalk late to party long day! Recommend it ; it’s like active mindfulness. The more you engage you parasympathetic nervous system the better you shoot. Our club ranges from 8-90 https://t.co/2PWlGlr60Y

@colourful_ot @Keirwales @OT_rach @Kirstie_OT @MotW_rpg When I was younger, I wish I had the means to participate in some Magic: the Gathering limited format tournaments at local card shops. Now the game has passed me by because of so many nuances and I can’t keep up! #otalk
