New DoD OT Guide: Bureaucracy Strikes Back or New Hope?

In this episode Strategic Institute discusses the forthcoming DoD Other Transactions Guide that has been in the works for some time.   The most recent 2018 OT Guide was developed by the Office for the Undersecretary of Defense, Acquisition and Sustainment.   While it did not become a "living document" as intended, it is still very good.   Use of OTs has seen a significant uptick since.  For a while a new guide has been cooking at Defense Pricing and Contracting, who assembled previous OT guides in the 2000's and 2010's.  During those periods OTs fell into disuse and saw the creation of today's popular, but not particularly thoughtful, consortia model.  The 2018 OT Guide was meant to evolve from learned experience, getting better with time and provide a go-to resource for a growing community.  However, lack of adequate training and learning opportunities has severely limited experience, and there has been no rallying call.  So, while possible contractual relationships, thus business approaches, has increased exponentially it is subjected to the same conceptual thinking.   Applying a stodgy bureaucratic mindset to flexible and freeing acquisition authorities meant remedy the dysfunction of a constipated system is and will be disastrous.    On the other hand, the new OT Guide could level up and enable the innovation and improved business processes many are seeking.  It could help readers understand and explore possibilities.   As of now, who knows?  Champions can be in unexpected places.

Dr. Ariana Boutain is the Vice President of Clinical Services at KGH Autism Services. At their facility, they are passionate about child-initiated and play-based therapy with NDBI.Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Intervention is an empirically supported approach to treating young children with autism that involves learning through play. NDBI represents a merge of ABA and developmental science.The general framework for NDBI that Dr. Ariana and her colleagues use is the principles of ABA as well as developmentally based assessments and intervention strategies for guiding goal development and individualization. Teaching strategies with NDBI involve child-initiated, child-led play. This involves environmental setup, communication temptation, and shared control with turn-taking. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a hot topic in the field of autism but it is a high priority at KGH. As they add SLPs, OTs, and other providers to their team they match therapy approaches, encourage play-based therapy for all disciplines and provide thorough training on NDBI.You can find out more about the work and treatment model at KGH on their website!#autism #speectherapyWhat's Inside:What is NDBI?Applied Behavior Analysis and Developmental Based Intervention.Why are child-centered therapy and play-based learning important?A framework for interdisciplinary collaboration.Mentioned In This Episode: Our Services | KGH Autism Services: ASD Treatment Clinic, Chicago & MadisonAdvanced Language Learner - Sign Up Today - ABA SpeechRegister for the Pyramid Educational Consultant's Third Annual FUNctional Communication Conference on October 17th & 18thABA Speech: Home

In this podcast Strategic institute discusses the advantages of using appropriate contracts for federal R&D.  Federal Acquisitions Regulations (FAR) contracts are inappropriate, per Part 35, which states FAR is procurement for acquiring goods and services.   R&D and advancing new capabilities requires a totally different business model and strategy.  If the federal government is serious about its work in R&D, why use contractual instruments that are inappropriate and chronically produce less than desirable results?Having, using, and being skilled at applying the right tools for the job nearly always results in a better end-product with far less consternation.  Anyone who has done mechanical or laborious work with the wrong tool knows how much better, faster, and easier the task becomes when the right tool is in hand and you know how to use it.  The exact same principle is true for federal contracting for R&D.  If you have witnessed someone performing a task with the obviously wrong tool, you know how ridiculous it looks.  However, if you have ever seen someone skilled using just the right tool for the job, it looks incredible.  Think about the absurdity of sticking with an inappropriate tool, but expecting little adjustments to make significant improvement.  The federal acquisition bureaucracy has been shaped using a single tool.  You know the saying, "if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."   Bashing away, government and industry insiders appear truly confounded as to why the FAR-hammer works so poorly to facilitate and invigorate 21st century R&D.      At some level everyone involved knows that federal acquisition for R&D and delivering capabilities  needs to be re-tooled and re-skilled.  Other Transactions (OTs) authorities provide the appropriate contractual tools for federal R&D now, but there are no craftsmen and very few teachers to provide apprenticeship and knowledge.  The skill level is novice at best.  The federal government has picked up OTs, is using them similar to a hammer, and has outsourced skill development to 3rd parties who have little interest or incentive in doing so.  In reality, the sequence of events is simple: pick up the tool, learn how to use it, apply it, and pass knowledge along. A simple razor, to help you remember -  If it's R&D use an OT!      Related Articles:Using SBIR Funding to Award Other Transactions AgreementsAppropriate Contractual Instruments For R&DThe Defense Production Act and Other Transactions

The FP, my company, was the first pp in Manhattan owned by an OT and the pre and postnatal community was my sole focus. So naturally it was my point of ref for everything .   I get a lot of questions from OTs about whether that's the only population you can  work with in this field, so that's what I want to focus on today. This episode  is Meant to arouse your curiosity.. And Inspire you to think outside the box.  You can implement Fundamental pelvic health techniques in a variety of communities and settings. It's not an all or nothing approach. After all, we are OTs, and we are only limited by our ability to problem solve with our clients. And we can problem solve with every single one of them.This is by no means will this be an exhaustive list but I will do my best to present a wide array. If there is something I have left out, please reach out to me via email or via social media and I will gladly add your additions to a future episode!There are a few different ways we can look at the subspecialties of PF.  The first is from the communities we can serve. The ones we will be reviewing today are “ people going through puberty, prenatal, postnatal, perimenopause, men, pediatrics, oncology, elderly, men's health, LGBTQIA+ athletes, ostomy care. Basically if you have a pelvis, we can support you! Let's get into the details of this now.The first was those of us working with clients  in a period of life where there are in transitions: this would include puberty and pre puberty clients, there's the pre and postnatal communities and my heart is absolutely here with this vastly underserved population. Likewise, there's perimenopause and menopausal people. Actually, all of these are underserved individuals who could use our support.  These are periods in our life when our Hormones are in such flux and that has an influence on our pelvic floor function. For example, both with lactating people and with perimenopausal people, estrogen is traditionally in decline, and this affects our PF's ability to be as buoyant, responsive and supple. During the menopause years specifically, These tissue changes and their symptoms are often referred to as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), and some tell-tale signs include pain with sex, vaginal dryness, and urinary incontinence! (Side-note: some providers may use the term vaginal atrophy instead of GSM). A very similar albeit temporary process happens to people who are lactating. In terms of supporting pre and postnatal people, we can offer birthing rehearsals that help prepare the birthing person for optimal delivery such as optimizing the uterus and ab wall to help push the baby out vs what many people think which is that the vagina pushes the baby out. Quite the opposite, the vagina actually relaxes and gets out of the way for optimal delivery.  Postpartum care can help with the ADLS of being a new parent and all that goes with that.

As SLPs, a lot of us get into this profession because we just want to help people. Helping people is just what we do. And when we aren't able to do that, it takes a serious toll on us emotionally. This quickly leads to burnout which can leave you feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.  But you don't have to stay that way. You can find more fulfillment by starting your own private practice where you get to build the life you want on your own terms.  In this week's episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Lydia Lacy, who was feeling stuck and unfulfilled in her job. This led her to start her own private practice which has given her so much more happiness and fulfillment.  Lydia started working for Detroit Public Schools right after graduating in May of 1999. She was placed in a Title 1 elementary school in the heart of the city and then moved around to other settings throughout the district. Lydia and her family moved to Georgia in 2011 where she continued to work in education. She has over 20 years of experience working in the school setting serving students from preschool to high school.  When it was time for a change of pace, she switched over to working for a private practice in 2018 but then moved back to the school setting as a contractor. That's when she decided that maybe it was time for her to start her own private practice.  While researching, she came across Jena's website and joined her Facebook group then reached out to some local therapists to ask more questions!  As a married mother with four children, Lydia is very busy working her full-time position in the schools while growing her part-time business, Katalyst Speech Therapy. It can be stressful at times trying to navigate each role, but she wouldn't have it any other way. In her free time, she enjoys exercising, reading, spending time with her kids, and dating her handsome husband. In Today's Episode, We Discuss: Lydia's journey to starting her own private practice The power of connecting with other people in the profession How Lydia finds clients The benefits of being an insurance provider Lydia's experience with accepting Medicaid The importance of having a mentor when starting a private practice I hope you found this episode inspirational. I love Lydia's persistence and how she finally took the steps and started her private practice. She is the perfect example of someone who wanted to do it, did it, and is now encouraging others to go for it too.  If you would like to learn more about our programs and how we support SLPs and OTS who want our help to start and grow their private practices, please visit https://www.independentclinician.com/ (www.independentclinician.com. ) Resources Mentioned:  Visit Lydia's website: https://www.katalystspeechtherapy.com/ (https://www.katalystspeechtherapy.com/) Where We Can Connect:  Follow the Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/private-practice-success-stories/id1374716199 (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/private-practice-success-stories/id1374716199) Follow Me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/independentclinician/ (https://www.instagram.com/independentclinician/) Follow Me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jena.castrocasbon/ (https://www.facebook.com/jena.castrocasbon/)

How can it both be the driver of the international economy and a laggard in terms of productivity and innovation, all at the same time? Can it all be explained by scale--both scale in multinationals and scale in SMEs? Whatever the case may be, future proofing manufacturing, which CESMII is up to, seems like a great idea. The influx of smart manufacturing technologies will, over time, transform industry as a whole, but it will not happen automatically.Thanks for listening.

John, how are you today? JOHN: I'm well, Trond. How are you? TROND: I'm doing well. I'm looking forward to talking about smart manufacturing. What brought you to this topic, John? We'll get into your background. But I'm just curious. JOHN: This is my favorite topic, as you probably know. So I appreciate the chance to pontificate a little. I've been at this nexus between IT and OT for the last two decades of my career or more and found over these past two decades that this is one of the most complex pieces of manufacturing period, this sort of unique challenge between the world of operations and the world of IT. And the work I did at MESA (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association) on the board and as the chairman of the board exposed me to a lot of the great vendors in this ecosystem. And through that work, I found that most of them struggle with the same things. We're all struggling in different ways. And so the opportunity to take one step back and look at this from a national and a global perspective and try to find ways to address these challenges became a very unique opportunity for me and one that I've enjoyed immensely. And so just the prospect of making a real difference in addressing these challenges as a nation and as an ecosystem has been just a privilege and one that I get really excited about. TROND: So, John, you mentioned your background. So you've worked in both startups...I think you were raising money for a startup called Activplant, but also, you have worked in large manufacturing for GE and Rockwell, so the big guys, I guess, in a U.S. context for sure. When this institution, C-E-S-M-I-I, CESMII, got started, what was its main objective, and what was the reason why this institution got launched? I guess back in 2016, which is not an enormous amount of time back. Give us a little sense of who took this initiative. And what is the core mission of this organization right now? JOHN: So Manufacturing USA is the umbrella organization under which these institutes, CESMII being one of them, were created. There are a total of 15 of these institutes, all funded with the exact same business model and funding model, and each of them having a different lens on the specific manufacturing problem that they're addressing. And ours, as the Smart Manufacturing Institute, is directly focused on creating a more competitive manufacturing environment by addressing innovation and research challenges that inhibit manufacturers from doing what they need to do in this fourth industrial revolution. So our mandate is to cut the cost of implementing smart manufacturing by 50%. Our mandate is to drive energy productivity, energy efficiency. Fundamentally, the agency that funds CESMII is the Department of Energy, which means that our overarching objective is to drive energy productivity as a basic metric. But we also believe that whether that's a direct challenge meaning addressing energy, performance energy efficiency directly, or an indirect outcome from a more efficient process, or a more effective supply chain, whatever that manufacturing initiative is, that we'll create a better product, a better process that will have direct and indirect impact on energy productivity, which is the connection back to our agency and the source of the funding that we have to accomplish these really important goals. TROND: And one of the really big identified gaps, also it seems, is this discrepancy between the big and the small industry players. So small and medium enterprises famously in every country is basically...the most of industry is consisting of these smaller players. They're not necessarily startups. They're not necessarily on this growth track to become unicorns. But they are smaller entities, and they have these resource constraints. Give me a sense of what you're doing to tackle that, to help them out, and to equip them for this new era. And maybe you could also just address...you called smart manufacturing industry 4.0, but I've noticed that that's not a term that one uses much. Smart manufacturing is kind of what you've opted for. So maybe just address that and then get to the small and medium-sized. JOHN: This is, I think, one of the really important observations that we try to make and the connections that we try to make to say that the status quo, the state of the industry today, Trond, is the result of three or four decades of what we did during the third industrial revolution. We began talking about the fourth industrial revolution many years ago. But we can't just turn that light switch on and assume that overnight everything we do now, despite the cultures we've created, the technologies we've created, the ways of doing things we've created, is now all of a sudden just new and exciting and different, and it's going to create that next wave of productivity. So when I talk about smart manufacturing and equating it with the fourth industrial revolution, it's truly the characteristics and the behaviors that we anticipate more so than what we're seeing. Because the critical mass of vendors and systems integrators, application and software products in this marketplace still resemble more of industry 3.0 than they do industry 4.0. And it's part of our vision to characterize those two only in the context of trying to accelerate the movement towards industry 4.0 or the fourth industrial revolution. Because it's that that holds out the promise of the value creation that we've been promised for ten decades but really aren't seeing. So that's the way we see the industry 4.0 versus the other concepts that we talk about. Digital transformation is another important term. All of that happens in the context of some initiative in a manufacturing operation to improve. We've been improving for three or four decades. What's different today? Well, it's not just relabeling [laughs] your portfolio to be industry 4.0 compliant. So anyway, that's a pet topic of ours just to help as a national conversation, as a set of thinking and thought leader organizations and individuals to put the spotlight on that and ensure that we're doing the things that we can to accelerate the adoption, and the behaviors, and the characterizations of what it really means to be industry 4.0. So to your point -- TROND: Yeah, I was just curious. The term revolution anyway is interesting in a U.S. context [laughter] and in any society. So it implies a lot of things, but it also certainly implies a speed that perhaps isn't necessarily happening. So there's all this talk now about how things are speeding up. But as you point out, even if they have some revolutionary characteristics, at the edge, there are some other things that need to happen that aren't necessarily going to happen at the speed of what you might imagine when you use the word revolution. It's not going to turn over like a switch. JOHN: That's exactly right. Well said, Trond. Manufacturing and bleeding edge never come together in the same sentence, and so it takes time for...and more so on the OT side than the IT side. Right out of the IT world, we have industrial IoT platforms. We have augmented reality. We have powerful AI machine learning tools. But what is the true adoption on the plant floor? Well, that's where the behaviors, and the cultures, and the characteristics of how we've always done things and the reluctance to adopt new things really comes in. And it's as much a part of the vendor and systems integration ecosystem as it is on the manufacturing side. And that's, again, this whole thing becomes...to drive (I really don't think it's a revolution to your point.) an evolution or accelerate the evolution towards Industry 4.0 requires the ecosystem to get engaged and to recognize these really important things have to change. Does that make sense? TROND: Yes. A lot of them have to change. And then to these small and medium enterprises, so I've seen a statistic that even in the U.S., it's around 98% of manufacturing. That is an enormous challenge, even for an association like yours. How do you reach that many? JOHN: Here's an interesting epiphany I had shortly after I came to CESMII and was working through exactly this challenge: how does an organization like ours access and understand the challenges they face and then look at the ecosystem that's there and available to serve them? The epiphany I had was that in my entire career with both big global corporations like Rockwell Automation and General Electric and specifically even the startup organization that I helped raise VC for and venture capital funding for and build and ultimately see acquired; I had never been in a small and medium manufacturing plant environment. The entire ecosystem is focused on large brands, recognized brands, and enterprises that have the potential for multisite rollouts, multisite implementation. And so the business models, the marketing models, the sales, the go-to-market, the cost of sales, everything in this ecosystem is designed towards the large enterprises called the Fortune 1000 that represent the types of characteristics that any startup, any Global Fortune 500 organization is going to go pursue. Which then says or leaves us with a really important conversation to say, how can the small and medium manufacturing organizations become part of this dialogue? How can we engage them? What does an ecosystem look like that's there to serve these organizations? And where an implementation organization like a good systems integrator can actually make money engaging in this way. And so that's where the needs of that ecosystem and our specific capabilities come together. The notion that democratization which is going to help the big manufacturers, and the big vendors, and the big integrators, and the big machine builders, the same things that we can do to cut the cost of deploying smart manufacturing for them, will enormously increase the accessibility of smart manufacturing capabilities for the small and medium manufacturers. And so that's where typically -- TROND: John, let's talk specifics. Let's talk specifics. So smart manufacturing, you said, and I'm assuming it's not just a community effort. You're intervening at the level also of providing a certain set of tools also. So if we talk about sensors, and data, and platforms, and control systems, these are all impacting manufacturing performance. To what extent can an association like yours actually get involved at that level? Is it purely on the standardization front, sort of recommending different approaches? Or is it even going deeper into layers of technology and providing more than just recommendations? JOHN: So the short answer is it depends on the domain, and the area of networking, and sensors and controls. Those are areas where longer-term research and investment to drive innovation to reduce the cost of connecting things becomes really important. And that's one of the threads or one of the investment paths that we pursue through what we call roadmap projects where there are longer, larger in terms of financial scope and further out impacts. We're hoping we'll have a dramatic impact on the cost of connecting machines and sensors and variable-frequency drives and motion systems or whatever sort of data source you have in an operation. So that's one track. The other piece which gets to the actual creation of technologies is more on the data contextualization, data collection, data ingestion side. And you mentioned the word standards. Well, standards are important, and where there are standards that we can embrace and advocate for, we're absolutely doing that. Part of the OPC Foundation and the standards that they're driving, MQTT and Sparkplug, becomes a really important area as well. And the work that MTConnect is doing to solve many of the same challenges that we believe we need to solve more broadly for a subset of machine classes more in a CNC machine tool side. But this effort, smart manufacturing, is happening today, and it's accelerating today. And we can't wait for standards to be agreed on, created, and achieve critical mass. So we are investing in a thin but vital layer of technologies that we can drill into if you'd like as a not-for-profit, not to compete in the marketplace but to create a de facto standard for how some of these really important challenges can be addressed, and how as a standard develops and we fund the deployment of these innovations in the marketplace and kind of an innovation environment versus a production environment. Not that they don't turn into production environments, but they start as an innovation project to start and prove out and either fail quickly or scale up into a production environment. So this idea of a de facto standard is a really important idea for us. That's our objective. And that's what we believe we can build and are building is critical mass adoption for really important ideas. And we're getting support from a lot of the great thought leaders in the space but also from a lot of the great organizations and bodies like, as I mentioned, the OPC Foundation, The Industrial Internet Consortium, the German platform industry 4.0 group responsible in Germany for industry 4.0. We're working towards and aligning around the same principles and ideas, again, to help create a harmonized view of these foundational technologies that will allow us to accomplish the dramatic reduction of the cost of connecting and extracting information from and contextualizing that information. And then making it available in ways that are far more consistent and compelling for the application vendor. The bar or the threshold at which an application developer can actually step into the space and do something is in a pretty high space. If you kind of look back, and I know this analogy is probably a little overused, but what it took to build applications for devices and phones, smart devices, and smartphones before Apple and Android became commonplace meant that you had to build the entire stack every single time. And that's where the industry is today. When you sit down in front of a product, you're starting from scratch every time, regardless of the fact that you've created an information model for that paper-converting machine 100 times in 20 different technology stacks. When I start this project, it's a blank slate. It's a blank sheet of paper every single time. Is that value-add? Is that going to help? No. And yet it requires a tremendous amount of domain expertise to build that. So the notion of standardizing these things, abstracting them from any individual to technology stack, standardizing on them, making them available in the marketplace for others to use that's where democratization begins to happen. TROND: So what you are about to create is an innovation platform for smart manufacturing. Will that be available then to everybody in the U.S. marketplace? Or is it actually completely open for all of the industry, wherever they reside? And what are the practical steps that you would have to take as a manufacturer if you even just wanted to look into some of the things you were building and maybe plug in with it? JOHN: So we're not about to build, just a minor detail there. We've been working on this for a couple of years. And we have a growing set of these implementations in the marketplace through the funded projects that we were proud to be able to bring to the marketplace. So the funding, and right now within the scope of what we're doing here as an institute, the funds that we deploy as projects, these grants, essentially mean that we spend these grants, these funds in the U.S. only. So in the context of what we do here, the smart manufacturing innovation platform, the creation of these profiles, the creation of the apps on top of the platform by our vendor ecosystem and domain experts in this ecosystem those are largely here and exclusively here in the U.S, I should say. So from that perspective, deployments that we have control over in terms of funding are uniquely here in the U.S. What happens beyond that in terms of where they're deployed and how they're deployed, we know we live in a global manufacturing environment. And as our members who want to deploy these capabilities outside of the U.S., those are all absolutely acceptable deployments of these technologies. TROND: But, John, so all of these deployments are they funded projects so that they're always within involvement of grant money, or is some part of this platform actually literally plug and play? JOHN: So there are several threads. The projects that we fund are obviously one thread. There's another thread that says any member of ours can use any implementation of our platform or can use our platform and any of the vendors that are here as a proof of concept or pilot, typically lasting 3,4,5,6 months for free of charge. What happens then that leads to the third component is after your pilot, there's one of two things that's going to happen. The system will be decommissioned, and you ideally, well, I shouldn't say ideally...you fail fast, the system is decommissioned, and folks move on. Ideally, the pilot was a success. And that generates a financial transaction for the parties involved in that. And that organization moves towards a production rollout of these capabilities. So CESMII's role then diminishes and steps away. But this notion of a pilot actually came from a conversation with one of our great members here at Procter & Gamble. They talk about innovation triage and the complexity of just innovating within a large corporate environment like Procter & Gamble. The fact that just to stand up the infrastructure to invite a vendor, several vendors in to stand up their systems costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and takes months and months and months just to get started. This notion that we can provision this platform in minutes, bring our vendor partner technologies to bear in minutes allows them to execute what they call innovation triage. And it really accelerates the rate at which they can innovate within their corporation, but it's that same idea that we translate back down to small and medium manufacturing, right? The notion that you don't have to have a server. You don't have to sustain a server. You don't have to buy a server to try smart manufacturing in a small and medium manufacturing environment. If you've got five sensors from amazon.com and lightly industrialized Raspberry Pi, you have the means to begin the smart manufacturing journey. What do you do with that data? Well, there are great partner organizations like Tulip, like Microsoft Excel, even Microsoft Power BI that represent compelling democratized contemporary low-cost solutions that they can actually sustain. Because this isn't just about the cost of acquiring and implementing these systems, as you know. This is also about sustaining them. Do I have the staff, the domain expertise as a small and medium manufacturer to sustain the stuff that somebody else may have given me or implemented here for me? And so that's just as an important requirement for these organizations as the original acquisition and implementation challenges. TROND: It's so important what you're talking about here, John, because there's an additional concept which is not so pleasant called pilot purgatory. And this has been identified in factories worldwide. It's identified in any software development. But with OT, as you pointed out, with more operational technologies, with additional complications, it is so easy to just get started with something and then get stuck and then decide or maybe not decide just sort of it just happens that it never scales up to production value and production operations. And it seems like some of the approaches you're putting on the table here really help that situation. Because, as you mentioned, hundreds of thousands of dollars, that's not a great investment for a smaller company if it leads to a never-ending kind of stop and start experimenting but never really can be implemented on the true production line. JOHN: Yeah. Spot on, Trond. The numbers that we're seeing now...I think McKenzie released a report a couple of months ago talking about, I think, somewhere between 70% and 80% of all projects in this domain not succeeding, which means they either failed or only moderately succeeded. And I think that's where the term pilot purgatory comes in. I talk almost every chance I get about the notion that the first couple of decades of the third industrial revolution resulted in islands of automation. And we began building islands of information as software became a little more commonplace in the late '80s and '90s. And then the OTs here in the last decade, we've been building islands of innovation, this pilot purgatory. The assumption was...and I get back to the journey between where we thought industry 3.0 or the third industrial revolution became the fourth industrial revolution. The idea was that, man, we're just going to implement some of these great new capabilities and prove them out and scale them up. Well, it gets back to the fact that even these pilots, these great innovative tools, were implemented with these old ideas in these closed data siloed ways and characterizations. And so yeah, everybody's excited. The CEO has visibility to this new digital transformation pilot that he just authorized or she just authorized. And a lot of smart people are involved, and a lot of domain experts involved. The vendors throw cash at this thing, and the systems integrators, implementers, throw cash at this thing. And even if they're successful, and broadly, as an individual proof of concept, there are points of light that say, we accomplished some really important things. The success is not there, or the success isn't seeing that scaled out, and those are the really nuanced pieces that we're trying to address through this notion of the innovation platform and profiles. The notion that interoperability and openness is what's going to drive scale, the notion that you don't have the same stovepipe legacy application getting at the same set of data from the same data sources on the shop floor for every unique application, and that there are much more contemporary ways of building standardized data structures that every application can build on and drive interoperability through. TROND: Yeah, you talk about this as the characteristics of future-proofing. So you mentioned interoperability, and I guess openness which is a far wider concept. Like openness can mean several things. And then sustainability and security were some other of your future-proofing characteristics. Can you line up some of those for us just to give some context to what can be done? If you are a factory owner, if you're a small and medium-sized enterprise, and you want to take this advice right now and implement. JOHN: Yeah, we've tried as an association, as a consortia, Trond, it's not just CESMII staff like myself who are paid full-time to be here that are focused on identifying and developing strategies for the challenges that we believe will help manufacturing in the U.S. It's organizations that are members here and thought leaders from across the industry that help us identify these really fundamental challenges and opportunities. And so, as an institute, we've landed on what we call the smart manufacturing first principles. There are seven first principles that we believe characterize the modern contemporary industry 4.0 compliant, if you will, strategy. And just to list them off quickly, because we have definitions and we have content that flushes out these ideas, sort of in order of solve and order of importance for us, interoperability and openness is the first one. Sustainable and energy efficient is the second one, security, scalability, resilient and orchestrated, flat and real-time, and proactive and semi-autonomous. And so these we believe are the characteristics of solutions, technologies, capabilities that will move us from this world of pilot purgatory and where we've come from as an ecosystem in this third industrial revolution and prepare us for a future-proof strategy whether I'm a small and medium manufacturer that just cares about this one instance of this problem I need to solve, or whether I'm a Fortune 10 manufacturing organization that understands that the mess that we've created over the last 25 years has got to make way for a better future. That I'm not going to reinvest in a future...not that I can rip and replace anything I've got, but I've got to invest in capabilities moving forward that represent a better, more sustainable, more interoperable future for my organization. That's the only way we're going to create this next wave of productivity that is held out for us as a promise of this new era. TROND: John, you have alluded to this, and you call it the mess that we've created over the last 25 years. We have talked about the problems of lack of interoperability and other issues. This is not an easy discussion and certainly not in your official capacity. But why is the U.S. a laggard? Because, to be honest, these are not problems that every country has, to a degree, they are but specifically, the U.S. and its manufacturing sector has been lagging. And there is data there, and I think you agree with this. Why is this happening? And are any of these initiatives going to be able to address that short term? JOHN: So this is probably the most important question that we as a nation need to address, and it's a multifaceted, complex question. And I think the answer is a multifaceted, complex response as well. And we probably don't have time to drill into this in detail, but I'll respond at least at a 30,000 foot-level. Even this morning, I saw a friend of mine sent me a link about China being called out today officially as being a leader in this digital transformation initiative globally, as you've just alluded to. So, from our perspective, there are a couple of important...and like I said, really understanding why this is the case is the only way we're going to be able to move forward and accelerate the adoption of this initiative. But there are a number of reasons. The reason I think China is ahead is in part cultural, but it's also in part the fact that they don't have much of the legacy that we've built. Most of their manufacturing operations as they've scaled up over the last decade, two decades, really since the World Trade Organization accepted China's entry in this domain, their growth into manufacturing systems has been much, much more recent than ours. And so they don't have this complex legacy that we do. There are other cultural implications for how the Chinese manufacturing environment adopts technologies. And there's much more of a top-down culture there. Certain leaders drive these activities and invest in these ways. Much of the ecosystem follows. So that's, I'll say, one perspective on how China becomes the leader in this domain very quickly. Europe is also ahead of the U.S. And I think there are some important reasons why that's the case as well. And a part of it is that they have a very strong cultural connection to the way government funds and is integrated with both the learning and academic ecosystem there in most of Europe as well as with the manufacturing companies themselves. It seems to have become part of their DNA to accept that the federal government can bring these initiatives to the marketplace and then funds the education of every part of their ecosystem to drive these capabilities into their manufacturing marketplace. We, on the other hand, are a much more American society. We are individualistic. The notion that the government should tell manufacturers what to do is not a well-accepted, [laughs] well-adopted idea here in the U.S. And that's been a strength for many manufacturers, and for many, many years. The best analogy that I can come up with right now in terms of where we are and where we need to go and CESMII's role in all of this, and the federal government's role in all of this, which I think brings a healthy blend of who we are as a nation and how we work and how we do things here together with a future that's a little more also compatible with these notions of adopting and driving technology forward at scale, is the reality that in 1956, President Eisenhower convinced Congress to fund the U.S. Interstate Highways and Defense Act to build a network of interstate highways, a highway network across this country to facilitate much more efficient flow of people and goods across this country. Apparently, as a soldier, many decades before, he had to travel from San Diego to Virginia in a military convoy that took him 31 days to cross the country [laughs], which is a slight aside. It was apparently the catalyst that drove the passion he had to solve this problem. And that's the role that I think we can play today, creating a digital highway, if you will, a digital catalyst to bring our supply chains together in a much more contemporary and real-time way and to bring our information systems into a modern industry 4.0 compliant environment. And that's setting those, creating those definitions, defining those characteristics, and then providing the means whereby we can accelerate this ecosystem to move forward. I think that's the right balance between our sense of individualism and how we do things here in the U.S. versus adopting these capabilities at scale. TROND: That's such a thoughtful answer to my question, which I was a little afraid of asking because it is a painful question. And it goes to the heart, I guess, of what it means to be an American, to be industrial, and to make changes. And there is something here that is very admirable. But I also do feel that the psychology of this nation also really doesn't deeply recognize that many of the greatest accomplishments that have been happening on U.S. soil have had an infrastructure component and a heavy investment from the government when you think about the creation of the internet, the creation of the highway system. You can go even further back, the railways. All of those things they had components, at least a regulation, where they had massive infrastructure elements to them whether they were privately financed or publicly financed, which is sort of that's sort of not the point. But the point is there were massive investments that couldn't really be justified in an annual budget. JOHN: That's right. TROND: You would have to think much, much wider. So instead of enclosing on that end then, John, if you look to the future, and we have said manufacturing is, of course, a global industry also, what are you seeing over this next decade is going to happen to smart manufacturing? So on U.S. soil, presumably, some amount of infrastructure investment will be made, and part of it will be digital, part of it will be actually equipment or a hybrid thereof that is somewhat smartly connected together. But where's that going to lead us? Is manufacturing now going to pull us into the future? Or will it remain an industry that historically pulls us into the future but will take a backseat to other industries as we move into the next decade? JOHN: Yeah, that's another big question. We've been talking about smart manufacturing 2030, the idea that smart manufacturing is manufacturing by 2030. And a decade seems like a long time, and for most functions, for most areas of innovation, it is, but manufacturing does kind of run at its own pace. And there is a timeline around which both standardization and technologies and cultures move on the plant floor. And so that's a certain reality. And we were on a trajectory to get there. But ironically, it took a pandemic to truly underscore the value of digital transformation, digital operations, and digital workers, I can certainly say in the U.S. but even more broadly. So a couple of important data points to back that up. Gartner just recently announced the outcome of an important survey of, I think, close to 500 manufacturing executives here in the U.S. in terms of their strategic perception of digital transformation, smart manufacturing. And I think they specifically called it smart manufacturing. And it was as close to unanimous as anything they've ever seen; 86% or 87% of manufacturing executives said that now digital transformation, smart manufacturing is the most strategic thing they can invest in. What was it a year ago? It was probably less than half of that. So that speaks to the experience these organizations have gone through. And the reality that as we talk about resilience, some people talk about reshoring, and some of that will happen. As we talk about a future environment, that's...I shouldn't say disruption-proof but much more capable of dealing with disruption not just within the four walls of the plant or an enterprise but in the supply chain. These capabilities are the things that will separate those that can withstand these types of disruptions from those that can't. And that has been recognized. And so, as much as these executives are the same ones that are frustrated by pilot purgatory, it's these executives that are saying, "That's the future. We've got to go there." And we're seeing through this pandemic...we hear CESMII are saying the manufacturing thought leaders understand this and are rallying around these ideas more now than ever before to ensure that what we do in the future is consistent with a more thoughtful, more contemporary, future-proof way of investing in digital transformation or smart manufacturing. TROND: John, these are fascinating times, and you have a very important role. I thank you so much for taking time to appear on my show here today. JOHN: Trond, I appreciate that. I appreciate the privilege of sharing these thoughts with you. These are profound questions, and answering the easy ones is fun. Answering the hard questions is important. And I appreciate the chance to have this conversation with you today. TROND: Thanks. Have a great day. JOHN: You too. TROND: You have just listened to Episode 17 of the Augmented Podcast with host Trond Arne Undheim. The topic was Smart Manufacturing for All. Our guest is John Dyck, CEO at CESMII, the Smart Manufacturing Institute. In this conversation, we talked about democratizing smart manufacturing and the history and ambition of CESMII, bridging the skills gap in small and medium enterprises, which constitute 98% of manufacturing. We discuss how the integration of advanced sensors, data, platforms, and controls radically impact manufacturing performance. We then have the hard discussion of why the U.S. arguably is a laggard. We heard about two coming initiatives: the Smart Manufacturing Executive Council & the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Platform. We then turned to the future outlook over the next decade. My takeaway is that U.S. manufacturing is a bit of a conundrum. How can it both be the driver of the international economy and a laggard in terms of productivity and innovation, all at the same time? Can it all be explained by scale, both scale in multinationals and scale in SMEs? Whatever the case may be, future-proofing manufacturing, which CESMII is up to, seems like a great idea. The influx of smart manufacturing technologies will, over time, transform industry as a whole, but it will not happen automatically. Thanks for listening.

The Order of the Solar Temple (French: Ordre du Temple solaire, OTS) and the International Chivalric Organization of the Solar Tradition, or simply The Solar Temple, is a cult and religious sect[1] that claims to be based upon the ideals of the Knights Templar. OTS was founded by Joseph di Mambro and Luc Jouret in 1984 in Geneva, as l'Ordre International Chevaleresque de Tradition Solaire (OICTS), and later it was renamed Ordre du Temple Solaire. It is associated with a series of murders and mass suicides that claimed several dozen lives in France, Switzerland, and Canada in 1994 and 1995.[2] The Good: Great lightshow. Very committed followers. The Bad: Suicide Murders Picking a Anti-Christ who is under 6 months old. The Culty (is there anything in this cult worth incorporating into our own?): The Nice Cult takes on Knighting Ceremony. Those Knighted by the Nice Cult will be known as the Knights of Nice.

Do you feel overwhelmed by the idea of starting a private practice?  Many SLPs and OTs feel that way and it's totally understandable. Starting a whole business can seem like an impossible task when you are already dealing with overflowing caseloads. Rest assured, it can still be done! By taking little steps every day, you will be ready to take on your first private practice clients in no time.  In today's episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Liz Seagrave Tantareanu to talk about how she did it little by little and now has a successful practice. You'll also learn how she became a Medicare provider and how she deals with things like people pleasing and perfectionism.  Liz is the founder of Golden Coast Speech Therapy Services in San Rafael, California, and has been a practicing speech-language pathologist for over 10 years. Liz's clinical interests include neurogenic voice disorders and Parkinson's Disease, care of the professional voice, gender-affirming voice therapy, early intervention for language delays and speech sound disorders, and literacy development. She is trained in LSVT LOUD®, SPEAK OUT!®, PhoRTE voice therapy, and Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk®.  Liz received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master of Science in Medical Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Washington. Her graduate work included research in the Vocal Function Lab at UW, investigating the construct of listener effort and speech intelligibility in individuals following total laryngectomy.   She completed a graduate internship at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford and a Clinical Fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System in West Los Angeles. She has worked across a range of settings and patient populations, including an interdisciplinary pediatric clinic, preschool early intervention classrooms, and acute and outpatient care, before founding Golden Coast Speech Therapy Services in 2020.  In Today's Episode, We Discuss: How Liz got started in the profession and decided to start a private practice When Liz decided to make her first hire How becoming a Medicare provider grew her business Why confidence comes from taking action The importance of doing it scared How private practice allows Liz full control of her professional and personal life The benefits of taking small steps to start your own practice It's totally possible to jump into your private practice if that's what you want. Just remember that it's also okay if you just want to dabble and take it slow. As long as you do something to move the needle forward, even if it's just writing what you want down on paper, you're one step closer to making it happen.  Liz is the perfect example of taking small steps to help you build big dreams.

Constraint-induced Movement Therapy has the reputation for being an intervention that is only for specialized OTs in some far-away speciality clinic. But, trust me: no matter what population you work with, OTs should be following this research. Today, on the podcast we are looking at a Cochrane review of all the evidence that undergirds this treatment. CIMT is perhaps the most-studied OT intervention—and it has lessons to teach us all  about: neuroplasticity, intensity, and the future of OT

Know Stroke Podcast Episode 31 Interview with Ralph Preston Founder of Stroke Buddies After a stroke, Ralph Preston leveraged over 40 years of professional video experience to continue to do good with his camera. He “turned the lens on himself “ and is developing high-quality videos for stroke survivors and for local non-profits.  About our Guest: Preston is the founder of Stroke Buddies: By and For Stroke Survivors, a Facebook group for stroke survivors that currently has 8,000 members and is growing every day. Ralph built this community from the ground up so survivors can seek answers, learn with educational resources, and receive support. Last year, he launched a weekly virtual stroke survivor support group meeting in association with MedRhythms and is assembling a team of medical professionals, PTs, OTs, physicians, neurologists, and neuroscientists who have suffered stroke themselves and are interested in sharing their stories and knowledge at these support group meetings.  Ralph also started a discussion show that is shared with the Stroke Buddies community and is called Stroke Roadmap. The purpose is to help those who are transitioning their recovery from PT to home therapy. Additionally, Ralph develops and shares dozens of home therapy exercise videos from his YouTube channel to improve at-home recovery.   This year Stroke Buddies was granted non-profit status, so now he is off to raise money and see if he can fundamentally change stroke recovery.

Are you a military SLP or OT?  It used to be pretty complicated to start your own private practice as a member of the military since you had to relocate more often; however, that's not really the case now. In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Rachael Harrelson, a decorated Navy veteran to talk about how she started a successful private practice on the side of her full-time job.  Even if you aren't in the military, you'll love this episode because Rachael shares some amazing tips for starting your practice on the side, the importance of Google reviews, and becoming a health insurance provider.  Rachael Harrelson, M.S. CCC-SLP is the owner of Southern Star Speech and Language Therapy in Burleson, TX.  She is a Texas State licensed and nationally certified Speech-Language Pathologist. Prior to starting her practice, Rachael worked in various settings including in-patient rehabilitation, home health, and public schools. Rachael received a Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at Baylor University and is a veteran of the United States Navy, where she served 8 years as a Hospital Corpsman in the medical field. Rachael has had extensive experience assessing and treating clients with autism, articulation, apraxia of speech, phonological and fluency disorders as well as pragmatic and receptive/expressive language impairments.  ​Rachael believes in a team approach to therapy and therefore encourages collaboration with parents, teachers, and other therapists to provide the most encouraging and successful environment for her clients.  In Today's Episode, We Discuss: The route Rachael took to start taking insurance How Rachael utilized Facebook groups to grow her practice How military families can still start a private practice What to do if you want to move after starting your private practice How Rachael finds inspiration for her private practice How Google reviews can grow your business The importance of putting yourself out there I love seeing the ways that students in my program are making their private practice work for them. Rachael wanted to take the summer to be more present for her kids, so she did! She adjusted her schedule to include summer hours where she took 4-day weekends. It's her private practice, and she calls the shots.  Everything that worked for Rachael can totally work for you too.

The change from “caseload” to “workload” may not seem that dramatic, but make no mistake it is a quiet revolution that is happening in school-based OT. It fundamentally shifts how we deliver care. The article we are discussing on the podcast encourages a  shifting away from an individualist, medical model “caseload” based approach. And, encourages us to embrace a “workload” approach, which hypothetically yields opportunities to focus more on population health. This shift has been underway for a while now, and the research we are looking at gives us an update on how this change is playing out on the front lines. After our article review, I'm so excited to talk about this with Jayson Davies, M.A., OTR/L of the OT School House! Jayson has experienced this shift in his own practice, and has a wealth of experience supporting school-based OTs.

I am a firm believer that starting a private practice part-time is the best way to start, but it isn't the best way to grow.  Growing your private practice takes time, support, and dedication. In today's episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Amanda Donaldson, a Grow Your Private Practice student, to talk about how she knew it was time to invest in herself and her business and go all in to grow in a systematic rather than stressful way.  Although originally from Canada, Amanda spent most of her childhood in northeast New Jersey. She attended Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania where she completed the five-year accelerated program earning her bachelor's and master's degree as well as a teaching certificate. Immediately following graduation, she moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Amanda worked for 4.5 years in various public schools and a charter school system. During this time, she worked with children from preschool to 8th grade and has ample experience with speech and language delays, developmental delays, Autism, specific learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, fluency, and nonverbal students. Additionally, she has more than four years of experience working with adults in a rehabilitation setting. She started CommuniCAN Speech Therapy in September 2019 to be able to reach and serve clients and families in their home environments. As a young child, speech and language therapists made a difference in her life as she struggled with the articulation of certain sounds. Now, she is passionate about giving back and making a difference in the lives of others. In Today's Episode, We Discuss: How Amanda is on track to hit six figures her first year in business Why she chose to have a mobile office Why a smaller caseload creates a bigger impact Ways to attract new clients  Marketing tips that Amanda uses to find clients Why Amanda wishes she would have started her private practice sooner Tips for hiring your first contractor or employee If you have a growing caseload and you're trying to decide if going all in on yourself and your private practice is your next move, I hope this episode is helpful. People join the Grow Your Private Practice program when they are overwhelmed by their growth and know that they need help to build a sustainable private practice. This is exactly what we're helping Amanda and other growth-focused SLPs and OTs with. Starting a private practice is easier than growing one.

And this is a topic I am very passionate about because as OTs, we are innately good at building relationships. And that's all, at it's core, marketing is. So let's build relationships within our community with ppl who interact with our clients and can send them our way!I wanted to dig deep so in preparing for this podcast epi, I reflected back to what I've done over the past 9 years with the Functional Pelvis (ya know, what worked, what flopped) in order to share my top tips in today's talk.We are going to talk about how to authentically hustle. The sales and marketing aspect is hard for so many of us, which is why I use the word “authentically hustle.” And what's authentic for me may be different than what's authentic for you. So after we discuss some key ideas today, spend a few mins brainstorming and jotting down some ideas that inspire you. What feels right for you? How can marketing feel less salesy? Only you can answer this question but I hope by hearing my stories, you will see that the authentic hustle is entirely possible.Ok so let's get into it now.My first tip -- Start getting your name known. Whether you have a strictly online business, or you offer in-person services, you should have an on-line presence that helps people meet you and get to know your personality and brand. This means making yourself visible and showing up with consistency. It's important for you to be seen as the expert where your client and/or referring parties hang out.Here is an example of this in the virtual world.Join FB groups where your potential clients or potential referring parties are. For me, this meant a doula FB group for the NYC area, a perinatal connection networking FB group, some popular fitness programs FB groups such as RYC, Mutu, etc. Join them and listen. Listen to their needs, pay attention to the specific language they are using to describe their concerns. You can mirror their language and concerns back to them or in posts. This will help them see you “get them.”  Once you are a fly on the wall and start to see patterns with their language and how they are speaking to their concerns, start to step-up and be seen as the expert in the room. Reply to their concerns with tangible, compassionate, concrete answers. And friends, be consistent with showing up so they continue to see your name in the forums. Ways to make this easier include Scheduling something on your calendar weekly to review your top groups. When you consistently relay tips and tools you will be seen as the expert and a dependable source of wisdom. From my experience, You will see referrals from this.The same things apply to the real world.So let's talk about that now.The goal in marketing your business is to make connections so that people (be it referring parties or clients who talk to their friends) think of you. Basically, You are top of mind when anyone mentions something remotely related to your specialty. An

Many of us were not taught about the economics of OT in occupational therapy school. And, part of that reason is that the research base on the economic value of our work is just emerging. In this episode we will look at an article on the economic effects of OT in the acute and subacute setting. The good news in this article is that there is a growing amount of research about the economic value of OT—and the initial research is promising. The problem is that the existing research is widely varied and there simply is not enough of it. This means we have to be carefully measuring our outcomes at the individual level. To talk about what this means for our individual practices, I'm excited to welcome to the podcast Jeffrey Kou, OTR/L. Having worked in acute rehabilitation, Jeff is passionate about helping fellow OTs provide high value care in these areas.In order to earn credit for this course, you must take the test within the OT Potential Club.You can find more details on this course here:https://otpotential.com/ceu-podcast-courses/economics-acute-care-otHere's the primary research we are discussing:Wales, K., Lang, D., Rahja, M., Somerville, L., Laver, K., &; Lannin, N.

I have some big news! After 15 years of teaching SLPs and OTs how to start and scale successful private practices, I'm writing a book. In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I'm sharing a behind-the-scenes look at what went into my decision to write a book, who it's for, and how to get your hands on a copy when it's released.  This is something that has been on my radar for a long time and it is finally happening. I have been helping people start their private practices since 2008, and I have a lot of levels of people that I serve—everyone from people who are just thinking about getting started or who are considering whether a private practice is for them all the way to people in their “scale” phase. These are clinicians who are looking to grow their income with a multidisciplinary, multi-location private practice. This means I have audiences with different folks who need to hear different messages. One of the largest groups though is the group of people who are still in the schools or hospitals thinking of starting their private practice. These are the people dealing with high productivity requirements, endless paperwork, unnecessary meetings, and low pay.  These people are often scared and have a lot of questions about whether they should start a private practice. So, this first book is for those that are on the path to private practice but haven't started yet.  In Today's Episode, We Discuss: The types of people I serve What this book is and what it isn't What's included in this book The tentative release timeframe for my book How to get the book when it's released Bonuses that will be included with the book I am having an absolute blast writing this book for you, and I hope that you're looking forward to reading it.

I love this topic because it really highlights our strengths as OTs and as holistic thinkers. This type of perspective helps the nervous system feel supported, and the longer I am a pelvic floor therapist, the longer I see the benefit of starting with this.We are going to kick off this topic with discussing permission vs informed consent – Permission is simply, may I touch you? Can I do an internal exam now? They reply yes or no. Informed consent is a bit different – its  sharing with them what you are going to do, and where you will touch them so that they are fully aware of what they are agreeing to. Everything is an invitation – this is what creates a feeling of being empowered – we can do this right from the beginning—starting with where they have to be in your space – such as saying “make yourself comfortable” sit wherever you'd like. Instead of “you can sit right there.” Even the physical space can create a feeling of safety – we can do tangible things like this to encourage them to connect to their nerv system – by responding to you and the environment. And just by walking in, and choosing where to sit, they  already feel empowered. They start their experience this way. Many of our clients have had too many experiences of being disempowered. And that stops with us. Practice in a way that fosters a sense of ownership of their own body – empower through choice by using the language of invitation and cuing.Here are few other examples of how Safety begins with the phy envt – we always ensuring clients are not on display, they are in a private space both so they aren't seen but also aren't overheard talking and sharing their story with you, also ensuring no one will interrupt the tx while in progress. Consider things like Do you answer the door during tx? Esp while the client is laying face down.We should be Mindful of our fascial expressions and the position of our body. This is even more impt with covid and us all wearing masks. We need to be mindful of our eyes and they convey safety and trust.Also, Let the indiv know where you are in the room. If you are moving around (esp if they are lying prone, or if approach from behind). Think about this in assessment and treatment.  Especially if they can't see you.Another important aspect that's imprtamt, especially with masks is our Tone of voice – how you are saying (not just what saying)As pelvic floor therapists, we are all trauma therapists ––  The intention often determines the approach. Why you do something will inform how you do it. It's about the Mental and emo and physical – this is a very multifaceted approach. And there are layers of trauma. There could have been the original trauma that resulted in a secondary trauma.  For ex, my client Runs for stress relief- but she injured herself – she can no longer run – her stress levels increase more. This is simple example of the Physical affecting the mental aspects and demonstrates the layers of trauma. The response and experience the person has is more important than the event.  For ex, take two War veterans -one who returns w/ ptsd and the other doesn't. Their History, wiring, learned behavior, coping mech, what strategies do they have to reg a dysregulated nervous system? All of this has an effect on their response.I

The research we are reviewing in this course showcases how far we've come in the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cerebral palsy (CP) in children. The authors also explore the strength of the evidence behind 182 interventions for CP, organizing them into an “evidence traffic light.”This is an important paper for all OTs to read—not just because CP is one of the most common physical disabilities we see on our caseloads, but because the paper is so well written. The authors do a fantastic job of highlighting the general trends behind what works, what doesn't work, and the progress that still needs to be made.After reviewing the articleI am thrilled to welcome Dr. Iona Novak, OT, PhD., one of the article's authors.

Have you ever heard of the neurodiversity-affirming approach to therapy?    For many years, we have been taught to teach students how to adapt to the world around them, but what if we approach it differently? The neurodiversity-affirming approach means that you work with autistic kids in a way that doesn't ask them to fundamentally change who they are.    In today's episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I sat down with Meg Proctor to talk about how you can start offering therapy that is respectful towards the autistic community and doesn't teach them to be inauthentic to themselves.    Meg offers neurodiversity-affirming, strengths-based trainings to OTs and SLPs who want to be more confident, effective, and affirming in their work with autistic kids.     Meg also hosts the podcast Two Sides of the Spectrum, designed to help neurotypical therapists better take the perspective of our autistic clients. Meg's website, learnplaythrive.com, hosts a variety of free resources as well as CE trainings registered for AOTA and ASHA CEUs.    We have to let go of our neurotypical biases when working with autistic children. By teaching our students in the way that they need to be taught, we can get much better results and more motivation from them.    Tune in to learn more about the neurodiversity-affirming approach to therapy and how you can start utilizing this method in your therapy practice today.    Full show notes available at www.speechtimefun.com/125   Resources Mentioned:  Check out Meg's website: https://learnplaythrive.com/ Follow Meg on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/learnplaythrive/ Listen to the Two Sides of the Spectrum podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/two-sides-of-the-spectrum/id1514489746 Join Meg's Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OTandAutism Listen to Rachel Dorsey's episode: https://speechtimefun.com/role-of-goals-for-autistic-students-with-rachel-dorsey/   Where We Can Connect:  Follow the Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/slp-coffee-talk/id1497341007 Follow Hallie on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/speechtimefun Follow Hallie on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SpeechTimeFun/ Follow Hallie on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/missspeechie/
