It's All About The Apps

FND PEN Workshop & Resources

FND PEN is hosting a virtual workshop with Central Florida Autism Community on Thursday March 17th, 2022 at 8.30pm on Zoom (Register in advance) and live in the CFAC Facebook group .


No matter which hurdles your child faces, apps and other media included in this presentation can give him or her an added boost. We don't expect an app to be a complete solution, of course. Working with students who face challenges requires lots of time, attention, and patience on the part of a parent, teacher, or other adult caregivers. Our goal is to offer you a host of fun apps you can add to your toolkit as you work with your child.
