@BillWongOT it could also be transitioning from being a student to a member of the workforce, moving away from home (4 work or school), etc. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:10:47 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT I imagine transitions would be a big topic, change school, year groups, peer groups, teachers..So much routine change #Otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:11:03 +0100)
@DiverseOT RT @allisulli : Sunday August 4, 7pmEST is #OTalk2US w guest @BillWongOT talking #autism & transition services for young adults. Join in or ?(Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:11:35 +0100)
@BillWongOT I personally had experienced some successful and unsuccessful life transitions as an autistic individual. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:11:40 +0100)
@OTtwehy I found transitions from home2school a major difficulty on OT placement for some ASD kids. OTs play a key role in safe transitions #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:12:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT 1 transition I considere a failure was when I prepared for my life after undergrad. It was b4 I decided to pursue OT as a career. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:13:12 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT what in your experience has been the hardest part of transitioning to overcome #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:13:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT not knowing the dx sure didn’t help, as I didn’t know about my deficits (even though I was aware of my eye contact issues). #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:14:05 +0100)
@AOTAInc RT @BillWongOT : I personally had experienced some successful and unsuccessful life transitions as an autistic individual. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:14:32 +0100)
@OTtwehy Interested to hear about @BillWongOT experience of transitions from a service user perspective #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:14:39 +0100)
@BillWongOT I also knew nothing about resume preparation, or what could help my cause in making a marketable employee. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:15:15 +0100)
@GillyGorry @OTtwehy . I’m not the biggest homeschool fan. iMHO. Miss out on so many sensory interactions and life skills #Otalk2us hard to adjust(Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:16:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT another thing I also didn’t do well- I didn’t know the importance of networking, as I didn’t network w/ my ex-classmates. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:16:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT the end result- I was unemployed 4 1+ year, b4 I decided to prepare for the pre-req’s for OT Entry Level Masters Program in US. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:17:08 +0100)
@BillWongOT only saving grace during that time- I took easy classes on my last quarter to boost my undergrad GPA 4 OT school application. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:18:09 +0100)
@BillWongOT On the flip side, I consider my post OTD life a successful transition. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:18:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT The difference I found is that I put a lot more effort into my transition, as I didn’t want to repeat the same mistakes again. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:19:32 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT is that because you have developed skills and coping strategies on the way ? #Otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:20:06 +0100)
@BillWongOT Also, I targeted my weaknesses (with help of OT sessions) so that I can be adequate in areas that I wasn’t passable in before. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:20:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry yes… that is true, because having the dx helped me knowing what my strengths and weaknesses are. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:21:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT While strengths based approach was important component for my tx’s, weaknesses were shored up so I can perform better @ interviews #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:22:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT There were a couple tx’s where I simply was prepared 4 job interview situations. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:23:11 +0100)
@OTtwehy @BillWongOT as a service user did you attend many OT sessions or get much OT input to help with transitions. Any e.g’s? #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:24:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT My OT told me some of the “little things” I should look for during the interview. That helped me in my job interview performance. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:24:48 +0100)
@DiverseOT ?Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.?
? Isaac Asimov #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:24:50 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTtwehy yes… I utilized USC’s OT Faculty Practice a lot during my time as a student at USC. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:25:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTtwehy These were 1:1 sessions. I literally spent 2 months to prepare with an OT for my transition post-OTD. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:25:57 +0100)
@davidsmcguire @BillWongOT I think you’ve done a good job networking. Not only that but you’ve introduced a lot of OTs to each other. #OTalk2US (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:26:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire Yes… but in my undergrad days, I was horrible at it. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:26:51 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT Was there a key moment, or intervention that aided transition better #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:26:56 +0100)
@OTtwehy @GillyGorry #1 /2 I agree kids definitely need school time 4 life skills & interactive play. What I meant is that OT has key role #Otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:26:58 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire I almost never talked to my ex-classmates. I never really knew how to use social media then. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:27:22 +0100)
@BillWongOT now I will open the floor for questions. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:27:35 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry I won’t say a key moment. I think I reflected upon what I did wrong in my undergrad days. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:28:08 +0100)
@DiverseOT I know there a a few #OT life coaches on twitter. I bet they would have a lot 2 say about #transitions . @OTCoachUK @CommuneOT #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:28:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry I told myself that I can’t repeat the same mistakes as I did in undergrad. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:28:28 +0100)
@OTtwehy @GillyGorry #2 to play with helping child & family with safe transitions from home 2 school. #Otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:28:47 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry @OTtwehy I heard a recent thing that there are options for kids to enroll in public schools on Internet. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:29:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry @OTtwehy I am not a big home school fan either. But for some kids, it might be better for them from a QoL standpoint. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:29:43 +0100)
@davidsmcguire @BillWongOT I think that’s a large majority of undergraduates #OTalk2US (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:30:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT I forgot- my culture has an impact on transitions, too. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:30:25 +0100)
@davidsmcguire @BillWongOT also there wasn’t social media during my undergrad days so its something I didn’t do. #OTalk2US (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:31:05 +0100)
@BillWongOT For me, my parents expected me to transition to new changes quickly… or about same time as an “average person” will. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:31:30 +0100)
@OTtwehy @BillWongOT @GillyGorry I do agree it does depend on the child &the severity of their anxiousness & level of capable interaction. #OTalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:31:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire But for me, I was nowhere as good in social skills as I am now. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:32:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire plus, I didn’t get along with people in my small department in undergrad well. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:32:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire back in those days, I was in my own little world. I went to class and then leave when it’s done. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:33:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTtwehy @GillyGorry and don’t forget bullying, too. A child might not like to go to school because of constant bullying. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:34:03 +0100)
@OTtwehy @BillWongOT @GillyGorry I wud love 2b able 2help more kids wit tis transition as school is a major platform for child development #OTalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:34:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT In terms of transitions, my view is that the amount of time each child needs is different. 1/2 #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:35:28 +0100)
@BillWongOT factors include- the child’s abilities, nature of the transition, occupations involved in the transition process, etc. 2/2 #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:36:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTtwehy @GillyGorry the ad said that the child can learn stuff at their own pace. #otalk2us http://t.co/eJyKIJdfb1 (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:37:08 +0100)
@BillWongOT @davidsmcguire It’s a combination of mindfulness (when I observed OT environment) and intervention (working on my weaknesses) #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:37:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT I will add that you can easily replace “child” with “client” #otalk2us , since adults w/ ASD could also use some tx’s in this, too.(Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:39:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT With transitions, I personally feel that it’s usually better to error on the side of caution and being over-prepared. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:41:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT Although we can’t prepare clients 4 every SINGLE thing w/ transitions, we can prepare them 4 common unforeseen scenarios. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:43:09 +0100)

@BillWongOT @DiverseOT Knowledge- this includes knowing strengths and limitations and prior experiences with similar instances. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:47:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT I personally believe that prior experiences (good or bad) can be used as basis for tx’s. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:48:41 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT As OT practitioners, I believe it is important for us to collaborate w/ clients to find building blocks 4 transitions. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:50:07 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT Building blocks can include skills developed from other occupations/life experiences. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:51:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry Hardest for me is probably role change/taking on additional occupational roles. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:52:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry and expectations (whether I know them directly or not), too… I forgot. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:53:06 +0100)
@DiverseOT @BillWongOT Remind of gr8 quote: listen 2ur elders advice not always bc they r right but bc they have more experience being wrong #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:53:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT True. But sometimes it’s also important to take some risks. Sometimes we learn more from failures than successes. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:55:45 +0100)
@DiverseOT @BillWongOT Absolutely agree. Firm believer in therapeutic use of self. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:55:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT what I actually meant was using clients’ own experiences. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:56:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT I probably will use MI to get them to talk about such things and troubleshoot. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:56:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT it’s similar principles for us to be reflective OT practitioners… except used in layman contexts. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:57:48 +0100)
@BillWongOT last minute comments/ take home points? #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:58:01 +0100)
@DiverseOT @BillWongOT No doubt. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 00:59:48 +0100)
@DiverseOT @BillWongOT As always, thank you Bill for ur sharing of personal experience. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 01:02:05 +0100)
@BillWongOT That’s all folks, hope everyone have a great evening. U can still ask me ?’s within the next 24 hrs and I will be glad to answer. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 01:02:40 +0100)

@BillWongOT @DiverseOT yes, there are certain situations where weaknesses have 2 b shored up 2 increase probability of successful transitions. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 01:07:05 +0100)

@BillWongOT @DiverseOT I always say probability because there’s no guaranteed formula for successful transitions. #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 01:07:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DiverseOT of course… that’s also because I am still a statistics geek at heart… lol! #otalk2us (Mon, 05 Aug 2013 01:08:25 +0100)
