The iPad and More: An update on Apps, devices, online resources and strategies to improve communication, cognition, literacy and learning

Most individuals, young and old, who live with communication, learning and cognitive challenges are never exposed to the many affordable technology tools that can help maximize independence and success. This interactive workshop is appropriate for family members as well as speech-language pathologists, special educators and other professionals who help individuals of all ages with special needs related to speaking, understanding, reading, writing, thinking and learning. If you want to learn more about my top picks for cutting-edge affordable resources that you may not know exist and get help zeroing in quickly on strategies and products that may be used to help accelerate progress toward goals please join me for this practical content-filled workshop. 

This workshop will provide an updated overview of the many highly engaging and easy to use tools available to help a wide range of individuals with varying ages and severity of impairment.  Save time, effort and frustration as I sift through the many products available and demonstrate for you what I believe to be the most effective affordable readily available resources that can be used to help others.
