The Yes No questions
Forums are full of tales of injustice, of HCP's that lie, that make stupid assumptions. HCP's are taught how to ask question, much like sales people, to gain a specific answer. No it isn't right and often a false result is recorded.
Assessors use closed questions and what they ask is not what they mean
For example, an assessor might ask " Can you walk 50 metres ? "
The full question is " Can you walk 50 meters Safely, Repeatedly, To an acceptable standard and in a reasonable time ? "
The answer to the first might be "yes, but I need to rest after 20 meters "
The answer to the second might be " No, but if I rest 2 or 3 times I might be able to "
We are all conditioned to reply in the positive. " how are you " "I am fine thanks " .
When asked can "you do x" we will reply automatically "yes but " that is to late the assessor has closed the window at yes
Try and reply "no but " the assessor then has to explore further
Try it in every day life.
Be all you can be, make every day count. Namaste
