Workshop- "Help! They’re Addicted to Technology"

Date : May 12th, 2021 at 1900


We are living in a very technology advanced and digital world. Everything is online- from shopping and appointments, to games, entertainment and social connections. The CDC reports that youth 10-14 spend nearly 9 hours a day in front of a screen using entertainment media and half of those are watching television. Let’s explore the effects of overconsumption of digital screens and media and how they are affecting our children and youth with ASD, learn positive support strategies around technology boundaries in the home and how to introduce and explore alternative hobbies.

Workshop Outcomes :

-Effects of overconsumption of digital screens & media and how it affects our children and youth

-How to explore new hobbies and activities with your children and youth

-Learn positive support strategies to help set boundaries around technology use in the home.

Presenter : Becky Kurtz, Founder of Aspire Community and Developmental Services
