#OTalk that’s what can be so useful about a dynamic assessment you can find out what mediation can be helpful, e.g. reducing the activity demand, using a verbal prompt, the need for physical cues. The information can help us to pitch the intervention at the ‘Just right’ level

I agree #OTalk
Rachael @RachaelD_OT
@AliciaRidout @alisonlaverfaw I agree... but then service specs are open to change... so, we are constantly in a position of having to justify what we are doing and why. It never really ends... I can’t help but feel trying to produce statistics takes us away from person centred practice... #OTalk

Perhaps if there is another student also on placement at the same time you could practice with/on each other? #OTalk @alisonlaverfaw

@AideenKa @alisonlaverfaw @OTalk_ could you ask for practical sessions with your programme lead, personal tutor and/or peer group supervision at uni? perhaps ask that assessments used on your next practice placement are demonstrated as part of induction to you @AideenKa good luck #OTalk

Sue Parkinson @MOHOspark
@emmaspellmanOT @OccupationalFox #OTalk So pleased to hear this. I'm waiting for the day when universities decide that (given that OT is not diagnosis-led) students can learn about health conditions on placement and use the time that would be devoted to this at uni, to teach more occupation-focused practice.
Alison Laver-Fawcett @alisonlaverfaw
Me too! When I was first working and sharing a flat in London,my flat mates used to let me practice standardised assessments with them in return for me getting a round or two of drinks in at the pub afterwards!! #OTalk
