Online meeting to focus on technology tips
March 31, 2023
In today’s day and age, it seems our whole world revolves around smart phones, tablets and the web.
There’s a lot of talk about the latest viral posts on TikTok, Facebook or Insta. However, it’s not just about social media. Technology can also help in other ways and for some autistic adults it can be used as a way of overcoming some challenges.
There are many apps available on phones that can help with schedules, for example. Reminders and notes can be set up so that people don’t forget important tasks or appointments. For some people social media can be a huge help as it can sometimes be easier to socialise online via social networking.
Technology can help in many different ways. At the next meeting of the Social Autism Space, the subject will be ‘Technology – how it can help autistic adults’.
There will be the opportunity to talk about technology and share information about what works for different people.
“Using an Apple watch helps me,” said Daniel Adams, who organises the monthly Social Autism Space meetings. “I’ll be sharing my experiences about how and why it’s so useful to me. I hope other people will share their tips too.”
- The group will meet online at 6pm, Monday 24 April via Zoom. If you’d like to join the group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01909 506 678 and ask for Daniel Adams.
