Presentation Sept 9 Minneapolis area to Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota

I’ll be doing a workshop on Sept 9 2017 for the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota (DSAM) Adult Matters Conference.

There’s a Facebook Event for my workshop, here’s the description from the conference site:

Independent Living with an iPhone

This presentation is about using a smartphone to support independent living for teens and adults with special needs. Dr. Faughnan has been using iPhones for six years to promote independence of his child with a cognitive disability and another child on the autism spectrum. The focus of the workshop is on iPhone use but also describes Android options. Topics will include phone setup, calendaring, notes, and related topics.

Dr. John Faughnan has a professional background in software development, health computing, and primary care medicine. He is writing a book titled ‘Smartphones for All: Independent Living with an iPhone’. In addition to his medical and software work Dr. Faughnan has been a coach and manager for Minnesota Special Hockey since its inception.

I’ll make my conference materials and presentations available online at
