It's been a few months since my last blog post back in December and a LOT has changed.
Today was the start of a new chapter in my OT career. After leaving my job in a Medium Secure unit I started a new job as a Paediatric OT!
Leaving the world of Forensics for a completely different area of practice was a decision which took a lot of consideration, and although I still have a great interest and passion for Forensics, the chance of developing my skills and gaining experience in my new job is an incredibly exciting prospect.
My new post is set in a mixed-gender residential school for students aged 7-19. The pupils have a diagnosis of complex needs, learning difficulties associated with autism and challenging behaviour.
I'm looking forward to learning about a completely new area of practice and seeing how I can adapt and develop new ways of working as an OT.
Stay tuned for updates on how my journey develops.
