How it Works?
In your initial one to one meetings, we will go through the Trinity Student Profile (Nolan, 2011; 2014), which will allow you to identify specific areas of college life that you would like to work upon with your OT. This enables you and your OT to collaboratively decide on how to address areas using the approaches outlined in ‘What Can my OT help me with?’
You choose how you want meetings to work. You can either meet an OT over a short period to address a specific issue, or you can meet more regularly with your OT for on-going support in engaging in your student life. Within your meetings, we use the Person-Environment-Occupation Model (Law et al., 1996), to identify possible barriers to engaging in your day-to-day activities, and to identify ways to fully engage in your student role.
As appropriate the OT may recommend connecting with other college services, such as college health, student counselling or your college tutor.
