Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to view all of the course at once to just find the resources I want to explore now?

No. Some but not all of the chapters will be available to you when the course launches. Additional content will be released each week. My hope is that you will also attend the Zoom sessions as well as sign up for the individual consultations which are included in the cost of the course.

Who are you?

Hi! I’m Joan. If you want to learn more about me, check out my website , my LinkedIn page, and my Facebook page.   I have written several books, speak nationally, and provide a wide variety of unique therapy, coaching and training programs. I am the mother of 4 grown children, owner of a yellow lab and spaniel/ border collie rescue, and an eldercare provider to multiple family members. I have a passion for learning how technology can improve the lives of people young and old with communication, cognitive, literacy and learning challenges.

If you’d like to chat on the phone, please click on the pop-up that appears when you are on my website and pick a time for me to call you! I schedule these sessions up to three days in advance.

Will these tools replace professional consultations?

My books and courses are aimed at making families and professionals aware of the many affordable resources that exist to help improve lives. This course and the books that I have written do not replace the training and judgment of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, special educators and other related professionals.  However, if you sign up for this course, you can receive personal 1:1 online tech advising and coaching sessions at a significant discount. 

This does not replace therapy and/or medical advice.
