Training & Workshops

Training

Training assistive technology Not everything is intuitive.  At some point in everyone’s life they’ve needed training in order to learn a new skill.  At LifeLong Assistive Technology, I strive to provide initial, long term and follow-up training designed to meet all your assistive technology needs.  I train the end user of each assistive technology device, as well as, the team of people working to help the individual gain or retain their independence.  Together we can determine the depth and frequency of the training needed.

One-on-one instruction is excellent as well as group instruction because of Stacy’s ability to connect with her learners. ~Cindy
