To showcase how our MyLife ePortfolio tool can be customized, we created a Staying Healthy portfolio with information on the importance of staying positive, keeping clean, and a list of useful resources related to COVID-19.
Designed to be used by anyone, the portfolio has been organized by category and subcategory. For example, in the COVID-19 Resources category, you can access media-rich content related to myths, travel, and disability/family/self-advocacy.
We’ve also included links to routines focused on staying clean, sneezing, handwashing, and cleanup; the routines use photos and video at the task level. Designed with supported individuals in mind, be sure to check out the lighthearted videos created by students currently participating in the Supported Living, Learning, & Earning with Autism (SLLEA) program.
If your child, student, or someone you support would benefit from taking the “distance out of social distance” MyLife can be used as a way to communicate and share their strengths, interests, accommodations, needs, and preferences.
Now more than ever, individuals with individualized education plans will need digital and remote support to help continue their educational experience in a way that works best for them and everyone on their team.
Please feel free to share this link with anyone who may benefit from the format and the content. We’re always happy to assist with training, support, and answer any questions you may have.
For those of you in transition and/or education, stay tuned for our next customized MyLife tutorial, which will focus on using the Zoom video conferencing tool to connect with staff and students.
Julie Henning has been with Cognitopia since 2015. In that time, she has been involved in customer support, training, marketing, documentation, social media, and data collection. Some of her favorite projects have been mentoring our videographer intern, Nate, and weekly classroom testing and curriculum development for the many students in the 4J Connections Transition program. She works closely with Eugene-based SLLEA (Smart Living, Learning & Earning with Autism) to integrate Cognitopia’s self-management tools into the organization and structure design input and support platform implementation. Professionally, Julie has over twenty years’ experience working in engineering, technology, software development, and journalism; a path made possible with two degrees in Technical Communication: a BS from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and a MS from Colorado State University. A single mom of three high schoolers (grades 9, 10, and 11), Julie has introduced Cognitopia to terms such as “sick” and “yeet,” while overseeing the office coffee consumption. In her free time, she enjoys playing recreational soccer, improv comedy, and traveling.
