@BillWongOT I frequently meet people newly diagnosed or bereaved. The #NHS is not resourced adequately to holistically address all of their needs #OTalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
Do you think the NHS still has a way to go to embrace the social model? #otalk @venthanMailoo https://t.co/8ImOy3hoBQ
Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@margaretOT360 I have dyslexia too, have been amazed by such the high number of #ots I've met with dyslexia! #OTalk

Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@margaretOT360 @OTalk_ I much prefer spending my evenings listening to music with the dog #OTalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
I think we have a different way of thinking which is useful for problem solving #OTalk https://t.co/2px35K2qkh
Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@OTalk_ I've always been very open about my dyslexia and hearing loss, though it gets frustrating when people then start shouting at me #otalk
Sam Pywell @smileyfacehalo
@Amie_OT @margaretOT360 #otalk actually talked about this today at work, am dyslexic too, now see it as a help rather than hinderance
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Not great for report writing ...#otalk https://t.co/MtpE8ondRY
Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@margaretOT360 A few friends and I have said it's to do with the creative nature of thinking those with dyslexia have #otalk
Bethany💙 @BethjmOT
@OTalk_ 2nd year student from Coventry University, late start but I'm here #OTalk
Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@smileyfacehalo @margaretOT360 I'm very creative and a very visual learner, I've always tried to use the strengths associated with dyslexia #OTalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Great to have you here #otalk https://t.co/TMYFvs1Uzd
Rob Brooks @dr_robbrooks
Evening #OTalk a little confused about the topic :-)
Shazz J-E @shazzajamie
@Amie_OT @OTalk_ #otalk yes & laugh when they tap you on the shoulder from behind & you jump

Question 2 #OTalk https://t.co/lN7eez7uV1
Bethany💙 @BethjmOT
@OTalk_ I haven't had a diagnosis for myself, but i have experienced family members who have received a diagnosis #OTalk
Shazz J-E @shazzajamie
@Amie_OT @smileyfacehalo @margaretOT360 #otalk I'm an auditory learner with hearing loss. I found this hilarious

Shazz J-E @shazzajamie
@OTalk_ #otalk not recently as returning to work after 1 yr. Have in past. Used listening skills, adult colouring/baking/walking helpful for some
Bethany💙 @BethjmOT
@OTalk_ Communication is important, but I feel it depends on the individual as I know some people feel more comfortable sharing than others #OTalk
Clarissa @GeekyOT
@margaretOT360 thanks for your patience. We could pretend it's a Halloween prank ;) :) #otalk

Question 3 #OTalk https://t.co/2EYIzJm5m5
Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@BethjmOT @OTalk_ Nobody should force someone to disclose info about themselves that they don't want to be public, it's personal & we're all different #otalk
Bethany💙 @BethjmOT
@OTalk_ A few service users on placement or previous volunteer experience. Empathy is key&active listening when building a rapport #OTalk
Venthan Mailoo @VenthanMailoo

Clarissa @GeekyOT
@OTalk_ @BillWongOT I was reflecting today on how working with people from different backgrounds has opened my mind #otalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
I would hope every OT would do that as a given #otalk https://t.co/mDyEbLLiN1

Amie Jayne💚 @Amie_OT
@OTalk_ @BillWongOT We should all achievements. A lot of people I've met are driven to achieve due to not in spite of their disability #otalk

@BillWongOT #OTalk NHS is awesome for acute issues. But it has some way to go on holistic recovery as when acute stage is over there is fragmented care
Clarissa @GeekyOT
@Amie_OT @OTalk_ that's really great. Wonder how many people never find a profession that fits with their values and interests. <3 #otalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Me too, after 32 years I still feel the same #otalk #best career https://t.co/v4FX24E03F

Shazz J-E @shazzajamie
@GeekyOT @Amie_OT @OTalk_ #otalk i was square peg in round hole until i found OT aged 42 1/2. Early work experiences v helpful as an OT eg cooking, admin, teaching

@OTalk_ Have you previously had a session on resilience and self-care both as a student and a professional? #OTalk
Bridget Churchill, B.OccTher, MBA, OTR, MRCOT @lifeforlivingot
@OTalk_ @BillWongOT #OTalk I learn that acceptance of the ‘who I am now’ is a gift and a starting point for recovery sometimes after disability.
Shazz J-E @shazzajamie
#OTalk @OTalk_ @BillWongOT thanks for stimulating discussion tonight.
