Welcome to Week 5. This week, we consider the issue of Transitions. We also explore and practice the skill of ‘testing’ or ‘trying it out’ as the step that comes after ‘making a plan’ in the ‘person first’ approach.

Resources and activities for this week include: 1. Mick and Emma discussing transitions – life transitions as well as day to day transitions – and the skill of ‘trying it out’ or ‘testing’. 2. A video with Chris Varney. 3. An introduction to the ‘testing’ or ‘trying it out’ skill. 4. One activity for you to share your experiences.
