It is essential that I understand them fully and manage the changes for my team essential easing the transition so I doesn’t impact on the young people I we care for. As a manager I need to be able to accept the change and see it as an opportunity to learn and develop alongside my staff team. The reason for the changes with health and social care provision is multi agency driven and some are difficult to achieve.

Parents will be carrying out alternative solutions suggested by the professional who can then decide which treatment can be most effective for the child. The professional’s role is collect information from the caregiver about the child meaning they have to listen to worries, questions, complaints, aims and opinions from the parents in order to give beneficial proposes for the child’s future treatment and developmental plans. The aim of the professional is to consult the parents at any given opportunity and give the family necessary knowledge. Professionals do not loose ‘authority’ and status because they remain in a considerable position but a major difference with the expert model compared to the Empowerment model is that parents are now considered as having a different expertise from the professional, bringing in the decision-making process information. An advantage of the model is that the child is considered as an individual.

Occupation is the Word that defines the occupational therapy profession, and it can use it for both ways occupation as a process or occupation as end or goals. Maybe that it will be confusing for personnel outside the profession and that’s why we need to educate and explain it every day. As clinicians, we need to clarify it in patient goals and daily documentations. Also, as managers, we need to promote our profession with occupations and their meaning for our clients. When we use occupation as a goal is simpler to everyone else accept their obvious meaning.

It is important that as practitioners, we are reflective in our practice, especially when children are developing, as we also need to develop too. By having a reflective practice, we are able to look back and see what we would do differently and why, maybe look if any theorists could be referred to within our practice. By being reflective, we are able to ensure that we are developing our provision, which will then result in the children in our care having the best opportunities, as we will look back to make sure that everyone's needs are being met, and if not, research into how we can do so next time. It's also important that as practitioners, we are reflective with our own practice, and our settings practice. By reflecting, we can see both the strengths and weaknesses of my self, and other practitioners within the setting, and also the policies and procedures we follow.
It requires effort and care. If people want to be good parents, they must take on responsibilities and they should understand importance of these responsibilities.

It is important to begin the training by teaching peers to recognize and appreciate individual differences. Next, review the specific target behaviors that are used to facilitate social interactions, such as initiating interactions, responding to initiations, keeping an interaction going, giving/accepting compliments, helping others/asking for help, and including others in activities. In addition, a list of prompts, scripts and role plays for peers to promote social interactions should be developed. Baseline data should also be collected during this planning phase through direct observation of the student with ASD. After all antecedent supports are in place, peers must be assigned to the learner with ASD and there must be at least one regular 15-minute interaction between the peer and learner on a daily basis.
