Katherine, a Distance Computer Comfort participant, was happy to share with us a testimonial on her time in the program:
“Getting to know Gordon Watt in the Distance Computer Comfort program at Neil Squire was one of the better things that happened in my life this year!
I was referred to this program by my current support worker at Fraser Valley Brain Injury Association (new window), Taryn, after expressing an interest in computers, possibly leading to a remote position in employment.
Well, I couldn’t have been more pleased with how things turned out in this adventure of learning!
I was given 12 free sessions on ‘computer basics’ by a Neil Squire volunteer who had not worked with the challenges facing those with a brain injury before, but wanted to learn. She was kind and knowledgeable, and above all, patient with my learning! Kudos to Claire!
Not only am I extremely grateful to all involved, but I am excited at my ability to keep up the growth in learning more!
Living with a brain injury has sometimes caused me to doubt my abilities to learn and adapt. Change can be hard. Technology is forever upgrading and confusing, to say the least. Learning ‘remotely’ is an even bigger challenge. It’s so exciting to me to know that this is possible!”
