12:55:34     From  Janet Gritz : When you say "Alzheimers", are you referring specifically to that disease or to dementia in general?

12:57:23     From  Joan Green : Greetings again. This is Joan Green, an assistive tech specialist, speech pathologist and online tech coach.I find Dakim to be a wonderful supplement to speech therapy intervention- definitely not a replacement. Again, if anyone would like to chat on the phone about the many ways to leverage the benefits of tech to support communication, cognition, literacy and productivity- feel free to set up a time to chat using this link- http://bit.ly/PickADayAndTime.  www.innovativespeech.com

12:58:10     From  Gulshan Ara : Hi Steve & Dan can you please share resource lins, email addresses & content slides also

12:59:02     From  Gulshan Ara : links

13:00:55     From  Karen Ricks-Gangwer : At what "stage" of dementia/Alzheimer's disease would a person still be able to participate?

13:01:49     From  Joan Green : I see benefits to Lumosity also. It’s a very different set of cognitive exercises but also has value, in my opinion. Many find it very satisfying and helps them think more clearly, others find Lumosity too frustrating. I try to find the best fit for each person and to change it up over time to challenge the brain in different ways.

13:03:12     From  Susan Wranik : Thanks Joan - which speaks to my initial thoughts on the benefits - not dismissal - of a clinical professional.

13:03:16     From  Janet Gritz : For seniors who don't have an ipad or other tablet  but do have a  desktop or laptop computer, can they access the program through the website?

13:05:13     From  Susan Wranik : Looking forward to trialing your program as a supplement to my clinical work.

13:05:51     From  Joan Green : Janet, Unfortunately, I don’t think the slower paced senior program can be accessed from a laptop or computer.

13:06:02     From  Gulshan Ara : No doubt it works fantastically

13:06:59     From  Ellen Pincus : Thank u

13:07:15     From  Susan Wranik : Important to underline that Alz is not the only dementia out there and that this program is recommended as a supplement to - not clinical substitution to therapy.
