Since the last blog the Occupational Therapy student and lecturing team have seen two beneficiaries as well as attending the 5th Anniversary of the Charity’s inception.
The students have been working with the beneficiaries looking at occupational therapy assessments and pain management strategies as well as vocational advice. This has given them an opportunity to put into practice the theory from the modules they are currently undertaking. For example the module Occupational Engagement is looking at models of practice which the students have been using as part of their assessment process when meeting the beneficiaries.
At the 5th Anniversary (at Goodwood Circuit) we brought a range of seating systems as well as sensory integration equipment for people to try out, which was well received. Also during the day we received a further 2 self referrals who have been booked onto our innovation project dates.
2 of the beneficiaries are coming into the university to talk to L4 and L5 occupational therapy student cohorts and one of these talks will form the basis of an assignment.
Further 2 beneficiaries have appointments booked in March
