At Sinneave, we are passionate about providing practical strategies and tools for skill-building so autistic & neurodiverse youth and adults can thrive in their everyday lives.

In this session, we’ll focus on the basic computer skills every person needs to find success in education, employment and life.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the Microsoft Office suite of tools–primarily Word, Excel and PowerPoint–ask questions and practice using the software, learning the basics of each tool.

*Because this is a hands-on session and participants require a computer with the necessary software, attendance is limited to in-person only.

Join us Thursday, June 22, 2023 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at The Ability Hub (300, 3820 24th Avenue NW)
