App-y Happy Workshop: Free & Inexpensive Apps that Get the Job Done @ Bittersweet Farms
Sep 8 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Thanks to a grant from The Autism Provider Network of NW Ohio (formerly know as TRAN) we are happy to provide a six month series of app sharing workshops for parents, caregivers and professionals interested in learning about the benefits of assistive technology in the special needs community.

The App-y Happy Workshop Series is designed to shortcut the time-consuming process of finding apps for individuals with autism and other specific needs. We have found that providing app selection expertise has enabled families and teams to support individual’s progress towards reaching their goals. Whether they have a school-aged child with an Individual Education Program (IEP) or an adult needing help learning to improve specific skills, iTaalk’s education team can assist by showcasing apps for a wide range of particular needs.

These expert-led presentations will include one and a half hour sessions along with hands-on labs that describe and/or demonstrate successful applications of assistive technology for individuals with special healthcare needs. Our hope is for attendees to learn how to use mobile devices to effectively target skill development.

Patriot Day
Sep 11 all-day

Patriot Day is an annual observance on September 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. Many Americans refer Patriot Day as 9/11 or September 11. Patriot Day remembers those who lost their lives during the 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States.

On the direction of the President, the flag of the United States of America should be displayed on the homes of Americans, the White House, and all United States government buildings in the whole world. The flag should be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect to those who died on September 11, 2001. Many people observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. (EST). This marks the time that the first plane flew into the World Trade Center. Some communities, particularly in the areas directly affected by the attacks, hold special church services or prayer meetings. People who personally experienced the events in 2001 or lost loved ones in them, may lay flowers or visit memorials.
