It’s essential to have basic computer skills in order to find success in both education and employment. Here at Sinneave, we are passionate about providing practical, hands-on opportunities for skill-building so autistic & neurodivergent youth and adults can thrive in their everyday lives.
In this session, attendees will get an overview of the three most commonly used Microsoft Office tools–Word, Excel and PowerPoint, with a focus on PowerPoint. They will be able practice using the software, learning the basics of the tool and in what scenarios you might need to use it.
*Because this is a hands-on session and participants require a computer with the necessary software, attendance is limited to in-person only.
