Get the friendly, easy-to-follow help you need to create a positive mindset so you can leverage the benefits of technology. I invite you to take advantage of all that I have learned as a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist, assistive technology specialist, and mother of four.
Google now offers many free customizable tools that can make life easier that go way beyond searching for information online. GSuite apps can be used to improve life for students and adults in school, at home, at work and out in the community. The problem is, most people don’t realize that these resources exist, especially those who need them the most! Even if you do already use some of the Google tools, you may benefit from learning how others have creatively used the readily available apps and features to improve life and reduce stress.
Life is busy. I get that! You can choose to participate in the live events associated with this course or watch the videos and reach out for help at the times you choose. All the videos and content will remain available for 6 months if you fall behind. As we all know, “life happens.”
