NWD MOD Workshop Assistive Technology for Social and Recreational Activities default
Well, I'm going to go ahead and get us started just to kind of in the interest of Everyone's time so welcome to the Missouri open door monthly workshop talking today about assistive technology for social and recreational activities. it's a mouthful and this is actually we didn't say this going to be part one we're going to do a similar topic with different things next month. Because there was just so much for us to do so go ahead. Angelina and i'm Julie reynolds I'm.
With the Institute for Human Development at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and we are the holder of the No wrong door for some things in in Missouri. So again. Thank you guys for being here i've got a couple of exciting events. I want to talk about. do a very brief overview of the wrong door. for our life. Course moment today. I'm going to talk a little bit about the integrated support star. and then the star of our show really scouts. It's going to talk about a system technology and join the great outdoors Angelina is our executive
producer. There, you can see her and she's all dressed all warm. So the first thing I really wanted to talk about with our exciting events is my life course. Nexus, which is housed at IHD is actually going to have their in-person showcase. I like to call up the showcase showdown I don't know if they like it when I do that or not.
But I do, anyway. But that is going to be a Kansas City, Missouri. We're actually going to do a live what we call a showcase. You can call it a conference but we don't like to because we think it's one more fun it's going to be April the thirteenth, and fourteenth in Kansas City Missouri and you can kind of just see the registration right there. But if you would just go to our lifeforce tools. Com website. you'll see something for the registration you can go take a look at that.
We have some plenaries plan. We have some great breakouts around all the things that that we do. That will hopefully interest you all around. the life. course the philosophy the tools the people planning, and tell me they're planning good food and good snacks. So I just don't know how you can meet that Okay, Angela and I just wanted we talked about this last month. This is the the last day of the virtual technology. 7 is the 20 third, which I think is tomorrow. I have trouble keeping track of days, but just some information there that if there's one day left they've had a couple other days of it. So just kind of some information there and we can we'll sit down, and it's about the updates, or I can drop the information in the chat when I get done talking.
So go ahead, Angela, Then the last one that I talked about. We talked about last week, too, is the the employment pro day 2022, and you'll see some good information that that is march the 20 fourth and again, we'll send this out as a follow-up. They are our own David baker who I don't know if he's joining us on the on the zoom here today or not, is gonna be doing that. So just to really like looking at technology to advance employment opportunities for people with disabilities. so if you don't get this and where you want to look at it, just look up and go to the Google and do Missouri apps a pse, and they will be able to find some
information there. Okay, great, Go ahead now. So I know, for those of you who have been on before. We talk a lot about the Missouri go on-door project. and really it's not. There is no such thing as you know. a door. but what this project is for as well as support people trying to find the right doors and the right open door to get the supports and services they need both for You know individuals. Who have you know, or older, have disabilities, that sort of thing, and also their caregivers. So how do they find information they need to make good decisions about their services and support? So that's really what no rodor is trying to do is really bring people together, as all of you on here. to really help us make sure that people get in the right door.
Go ahead. so it's really it's it's not building an infrastructure. It's really this, that framework so I just talked about to build that that network. And if we look over the past couple of years you know we've really brought a lot of you all in from Aaa.
So as for independent living, those kinds of things to partner around how we can get people better services and supports. I'm going to move to chart of the life course next. So I know, you guys that have been on before kind of i've heard us talk a lot about the chart of the life course, but it it really is a framework and a philosophy around course, and center, thinking and courses that are planning for all people. it's the thought of really thinking about the person and the family In the context of their community to figure out how we can assist them to get better.
You know, services and supports is also some networking. If you come to our showcase in April you will learn more about turning the live course. And one thing I did forget to say about the showcase. There is going to be a virtual option for those of You who would don't want to come for a in-person showcase, or just can't do commit to the travel.
We are going to have a virtual track in that, So that will be on our website as well go ahead. So I think we've talked about that you know just some of the things that what we're trying to do around part of the life course is just that continual exploration of life possibilities part of our partnership with missouri assistive technology is really not only to to have you all learn about how you can help explore that with families. But then, what are some of the many, many technology things that could be used to help families, you know, really get to their best life.
So things like sharing ideas. We set higher expectations, you know, really advocating and planning for what is coming up next. And I think you know, these assistive technology partnerships we have. we're scouter, David, come on and and talk to us about all the things that are available, and we think about it in the context of the family and the individual through the life course, I think, is a great way to bring everything together. Go ahead. So today I wanted to. I know last month, if you all were on. you know Jane St. John, who is our our star Life courser I will never live up to to Jane's abilities and knowledge, but talked a lot about the goal attainment and a little bit about the integrated support star. And I just wanted in the context of what we're talking about today to revisit the integrated support star a little bit.
So it's just scout is talking about all the many cool things he has, which there are a ton. I can't wait for you to see it so I Won't take up a 10 year to time, but I just want to go kind of back through those integrated support stars. So go ahead, Angelina. So yeah, I think you've seen this before these 5 points of the star.
But we talk about, you know, personal strengths and assets, which I think is one of the most important things we can talk about. Not only for ourselves, but for all the people we support. We never seem to It seems like in our world people you don't always say all the things that you do.
Well, we tend to to go to the things Why, don't do that? So well, or i'm not good at that but it is so important for ourselves in front of people we support to really talk about all the things we have, all the strengths we have all the things we're good at the things we like and admire about ourselves and things people like and admire about us, and we can start with that kind of positive strength based approach. It makes really everything we do for ourselves, and for the people we support so much better and so much more positive. So you know we'll go through a couple stars more but I think that's an that's my that's the favorite thing I have on this star, and I was gonna say most favorite. And so one of my personal strengths might not be good grammar. But I did try and catch myself and then you can kind of see some of the other things we really want to try to look at around relationships, you know, who are all those people in your life. Whether it's it's friends family acquaintances people you work with, you know people you you socialize with go to church.
Well that there are those people you have in your life. A scale talks about things today. you might put your fishing buddies on here. You'll know why I said that later. So. We also talk about some of those eligibility specific things. You know where you have got a one of these open door plan for the future that we'll talk about at the end to really kind of look at where some of the funding where some of the funding comes from for some of these things. Some of those eligibility specific things also we're all the places we go in the community as we talk today.
Scott's going to talk about a lot of cool things that can be done out, you know, kind of in the great outdoors. So you know, if you if you wanted to do a star around the social recreation, you can list some of the places you know, specific parks that that you find specific things. You can can do out there parks that might have some accessibility that kind of thing. So in the context of what we're talking about it really isn't relationships. Who am I going to go with and who's going to be out, you know, in the great outdoors with me? And where am I gonna go? And of course technology is what we're talking about today? If you wanted to pull out a blank star or even just the information you'll have to have the star there's a lot of things Scouts going to talk about today.
You can pull all together, you know, in a star about you know if you do. I'm gonna keep going to fishing because i'm fascinated by it. You know? What are all your technology things that scatters brought up today for for fishing? And where are all the places you can can go fish who's going to take you fishing? And what are your some of your abilities? you know one of my personal strengths around fishing would be that i'm not afraid of worms, so I could put a worm on a hook, so all right go ahead to that next man, Angelina, and these are just. I just want a reminder.
And Jane talked about this last time. first of all don't ever get caught up in the form or the format, or how things are done. But if you ever just need ideas, you can see we have all these different starter stars. I kind of put the healthy living up again, and the community living.
You could easily do a star that just says, you know recreation or the specific you want to do. But just always go to our life course, tools, com website. And you can find all of this this really great information. Go ahead. And then I just kind of put the social spirituality on up here to kind of show. There's different domains and things we talk about and again. That center of that star could be anything that you want it to be. So just as today. we're talking about i'm going to keep calling it the great outdoors, because it makes me happy.
You know what are all the things that we just kind of talked about that you can put in that you have for the great outdoors. Okay, go ahead, and then I just have a blank star so you can see that it's very easy just to fill the blank star out. So you might just sit there to today and just as you're listening to scout jot down some things about the technology he's talking about.
You don't need the form you don't need the actual star even though it's pretty. You know who are the community, what communities are going to go to to use some of these technology tools, And who are the people that are going to go there with you? Last one for me, I think. and then this is just I showed this split star. It's one of my favorite things to really talk about what you have now. So you know, what are my personal strengths. Now, what technology do I have now? And if I want to be going out and doing, you know something doing, hiking, or going to trails, what do I need in the future? And all these things. So I show you this is just a very quick overview, but just to kind of remind you one, you don't need the this, the actual tool to do this, and think it in those different ways around you know assets
relationships, community and technology. But we always have those up on our website for you guys to take a look at and use. Go ahead. So then there's the links again, and I will throw those in the chat as well. When I get done talking, I can't do 2 things at once. Okay next one. And now i'm going to turn it over to scout. Well, I'm going to let him introduce himself and hopefully he's got some things to show us, and I think it'll be very cool.
Thank you. Okay, my turn. and I don't know it is if you guys are seeing I had some strange thing going on with my white lines of my sweater. So sorry if that's bugging people all right so I am here to talk about the enjoying the great outdoors like Julie said. And you know, going outside and talking about outdoor activities. There's you know, probably about a 1,000 ways that you can mitigate this. So I decided to just stick with kind of the wild side of things.
For this presentation, so we can kind of go forward. and you know, as I think about what can we do outside? That is kind of inaccessible, accessible activities. And I think you know, looking at wild flowers or plans in general. But there's different apps. This missouri wild Flowers is an app that you can use without an Internet connection which is very nice, and you can identify plants predominantly. Flowers, and you know whether they're wildflowers or even betting plants. There's different apps, lots of different apps that will identify all kinds of plants.
But what a great thing to do when you get outside is to talk about differences in plants and the flowers and the you know whether the the colors of them, whether they're blooming early or late But just there's a variety of apps to to do a simple project like looking at flowers. So we're gonna go on to the next one the next app which is a tree identifier. Also a really handy thing I think there's plenty of folks that you know. Probably know about identifying trees by their leaves. but you know you can also identify trees by their shapes, and their bark, and the way the leaves come off the branches.
I mean there's just all kinds of things all kinds of ways to identify trees. It really can just facilitate a lot of conversation you happen to be interested in these kinds of things which maybe i'm maybe too interested in these kinds of things. But the my tree. Id is a great app or identifying trees, and you know look at another app, which is, if you want to identify something that's not quite so. Still, maybe the Audubon Bird guide would be a great app. So over 800 species of North American birds are identifiable through the Audubon Bird Guide.
And you know I actually didn't check the first 2 but this app and then we'll talk about one more. These apps are work with voiceover which is a way to use your iphone. You don't voiceover. is specific to iphones, but these apps do work with any kind of voice options on smartphones, which is great. So i'm gonna look at Oh, so if you're looking at these apps. We'll go to the next slide you might be working with somebody who wants to take pictures of flowers or trees or birds, and if they don't, if somebody doesn't have access or can't use a standard camera a switch adapted camera might be a great option, so there are different style. You can use a standard camera, and Rj. Cooper has a way to adapt that, or you can buy a sweet adapted camera from Bj.
Live so. you know there's just all kinds of ways to to get out and enjoy nature all right. So I have one more app which might come in handy, which is the Missouri Department of Conservation, has an app called low outdoors again. This one. It also works with works really well with voice over. But this app actually lets you know about all the conservation areas in Missouri. So we have over a 1,000 conservation areas in this State, which is great. 200 you know they have all different kinds of features I can't say they're located in every county.
I didn't actually check, but they are really all over the State. But the great thing about this app is that it will not only give you details and regulations about about each conservation area, but the Ada compliant features are listed right there, super easy to find, and and just right there would pull up each site. And there are interactive maps that you can use offline, which is also very nice. Nobody wants to get lost, and you can. You can get directions with your preferred navigation app.
So I really recommend this Missouri department of conservation app mow outdoors. And you know I recommend getting out and seeing your your local areas. I will just take a second to say I think sometimes when we think about recreation for people with disabilities. We. I think it's easy to limit ourselves to like Okay, we need to do things we think of indoor things, but there is a lot of outdoor spaces and activities that either are or can be accessible to a variety
of folks. All right let's. go on so you might find great information on the department of conservation's website about where your conservation areas are located, but I will say that well, there's a reason I chose this image for the website. So when I was looking around for the Ada compliant features on the website, let's go to the next slide, So I scrolled all the way to the bottom and found in this little yellow box there's where you go to find accessibility information and when I clicked there. I didn't even put it it took me to one page and told me that you are allowed to bring your mobility devices to any conservation area job. But it did not tell me any of the ada compliant features, and i'm i'm sorry I don't mean to, you know. Make fun of the Department of Conservation. I I think, very highly of of our our wild spaces, but I It was hard to find that aba compliant features through the website, but through the app super easy.
So I recommend the app. all right. So what? So Then I threw this in. Okay, So what makes a park accessible? So of course to when you know after you get to a park, you wouldn't if you need accessible parking, that's the first thing. So there should be signage There should be room for a van and space to unload. If that's a need we need a paved or compacted path from the accessible parking around around the area, and to any features that would that would be it.
The path should be wide enough to accommodate at least 2 maybe 3 walkers. 3 people walking, or a wheelchair and a companion. Your amenities should either be at varying heights or be accessible, for a wheelchair.
Tables should have at least one open side and playground. equipment would have a low entry steps, a variety of activities that don't require climbing, and there may be other features. but whether or not any particular park has any of these things only matters if you need them so. So for me. If if if you are on this call, and if you are thinking about like who you might go out into the community with it's really their needs that you need to keep in mind. And And so looking at the finding out, the the specifics of any area, whether it's a you know playground or a conservation area. Will it meet your needs or your family members needs or your clients needs? Really sometimes just takes a visit or digging around for some information through an app or the website all right. And so there is a couple of places. accessible. playground net does have a list of accessible playgrounds.
It is not a comprehensive list by any means, and disabled accessible outdoors is another area where you can. We can locate information about accessible outdoor areas. All right. So Julie was talking about fishing, so I looked up fishing. I myself do not fish but I started looking it up, and I I only did one slide of fishing.
But, man, there are some there's a lot of information about accessible fishing gear so and like I wrote on here. There are so many options so there's a picture here of of a risk support that you know would hold the fishing poll, so that it doesn't as much grip to hold the fishing pole and then down below i've put a few things like a not cool and not time tool and that is like I can't quite see you know, like $40. So a lot of this equipment is not very expensive. The belt that will support the fishing pole, and that one is 20 under $25. But what are great option for folks the a real handle That's only $20.
But then there's also an electric reel it's over $500, you know, but for folks who are fishing is their joy. You What a great option to be able to give that hobby sport, whatever it is to them, back with a an electric video, or something of that nature! I suppose there's probably more we could talk about with fishing, but you know kind of like Julie was saying earlier. It's it's not just about getting out and fishing It's also about either enjoying things that maybe you've once done trying something new connecting with your community of friends that might really love to fish I mean they're there are really lots of ways that getting out in the outdoors. Really fully supports the whole person, and not just their recreational wants or needs. Somebody is putting in the chat. Do we have any fishing equipment? We unfortunately do not have any adaptive fishing equipment. If there's something specific, you can email me because we have a center that may have some adaptive equipment that I could borrow so feel free to talk with
me afterwards about it, and I will say this: If I had 20 people asking about some adaptive fishing equipment, we might then get some in our in our lending library. All right. So hunting a whole mother thing. So So this is a bit of an on setup. But I put it on here. So this is A. model it's b adaptive model. H. Q. 100 All right, so it is a support for a high-level quad.
So a high-level quad for those of you who don't work with people with Quadruplegia would be somebody with no use of their arms or hands, and you know often a car accident or something like that would could result in being a high-level. Quad But if hunting is what you love, imagine being able to do that, using your chin, your breast. So you know there are companies out there like via adaptive, that have equipment that can. You can operate a gun, and even unjust it with just your breath and your and chin movement.
So I just put that in there. just kind of just to kind of show what equipment is out there. Not that most of us will be running out to get one of these. Be adaptive model Hq. One hundreds all right let's. But there are some other hunting devices that you know, are a little more reasonably proud, and and in a little more broad, broad maybe brought appeal. So the the one on the left is a scope. So instead of a standard scope, this is an electronic scope that has a magnifier on it. So if you have vision loss, but still love to hunt.
Obviously you want to see what you're shooting at So this electronic scope can help brighten and magnify what you're looking at in I crop the picture They're looking out a window a snowy snow-covered window when there's a tree there so It looks a little strange, but that's that's what the images on that camera the the one on the middle is just a gun. mount. So this is something you could mount this to a wheelchair. The individual would still need to have hand control to use The trigger on this gun, but they wouldn't have to hold the the gun. So if if they had weakness in their arms, but could still shoot, they could use a mount like this.
200. The there is a bypod in the middle, so not a tripod, but just a two-legged stand. So again, if somebody, maybe has a tremor or weakness, this little stand would be easy to take out and carry with them, and the gun just would attach on there pretty simply, and and you could also attach a camera on here so do keep that in mind there are lots of things that don't have to just be used for funding, but you know whether you're attention a camera or a gun. This is a way to steady something and support So individuals can keep doing those kinds of activities. The scope is a self-adjusting scope. So so like if there's a bit of a tremor or something like that. It keeps the image rather still. Now, this was very bracy and I don't expect that the most of us I don't expect to ever have this in our in inventory but kind of an interesting an interesting idea and then down below is, is another trigger, a basically a sipping puff activated trigger for a rifle.
So it's just a little bit of a close up of that so lots of variety in hunting and fishing options for getting out for people alright. So. Oh, and here's one I do like I mean there's something I do participate in is camping. So I wanted to show there's all kinds of tents but I wanted to show some wheelchair accessible. Well, actually, it's just it's both the same model a wheelchair accessible tent. So this You can see somebody could you know go in easily there's very little at the bottom for the wheelchair to roll over.
There's room out, because if you think about if you're going, camping in a wheelchair one of the activities you have to do is go from where you're sleeping into your chair most tense you would do that out. You have to do that outside of the tent. This one. you can take your chair inside into the little chamber and transfer into your chair and get your rain. Coconut. yeah undercover, so because sometimes let's face it. We go camping, and it rains so I really like that area. I have watched coworkers get out of their car assemble their real chairs and transfer into that a wet wheelchair in the rain, and you know it's that's just looks all kinds of miserable. So this feature really appealed to me. Having that room where your chair could be in case your rains okay? And then, also, having it be high enough that if you do need a bed off the ground to have that level transfer from your chair to the bed.
And that's actually an option in this in this kind of attempt so other things that you could do for tents is, if you're familiar with flagging tape you know you'd see it along the road you could tie flagging tape onto the zippers so that you know tens always have 2 zippers, and you know it's hard enough with vision to find out where the heck the zippers are located. So if you had flagging tape on your zippers, you would always know where to find that zipper. even if you had vision loss or for somebody, even with a cognitive impairment, it would make more sense to go to where that flagging tape is to to unsip your tent to get in and out, and it might help you remember to zip it up when you leave so different things that can be done to make camping i'm sorry I can't do anything about the bugs. But you know, we are in Missouri. Okay, So the whole this whole time has been about Oh, I actually moved this slide, but didn't didn't update anybody This whole thing has been about outdoor recreation and I kind of left this slide in because I think it's really cool. So i'll probably talk about it again. some time. but going to the movies. So this is our commercial break from from our great outdoors.
Because going to the movies there's lots of ways that it can be more accessible like assistive listening devices. So lots of movie theaters have something you just have to ask up front. Tell them which move you're going to get a device. and It can be paired to the room and amplify all the all the sound coming out of the speakers. Some movie theaters also have options for closed captioning. So this device in the middle here, would sit in the drink holder and display all the all. the spoken words might even display the sounds like closed captioning can often do the the the next picture all the way to the right talks about audio description and assistive listening. So audio description is basically a way to talk through the action of the movie.
So if you have vision loss, so maybe you can hear all the dialogue, and know what's going on. But when there's you know somebody playing cards at a table and they're not talking, especially if it's in maybe a bar, It's a dimly lit scene there's no way for somebody with significant vision loss to know what's going on so audio description would just be a simple line that would be played into the the listening device that would say, you know, for individuals playing cards at a table one looking very agitated something to that effect so that that person can stay engaged with the movie outside of dialogue. There are also sensory, friendly films and so you'd have to just call the theater and and call around to find a theater that would have sensory friendly films, and they'll do things like leave the lights on and let people walk around, and you know it would not be uncommon for for someone to be talking or to make some noises during the film, and that would all be more welcome at a sensory friendly.
Film. So there's our I think our short break from the outside all right. So the in my mind. if you are going outside and you have vision loss. What you want is to be seen. it's great if you see others, but it's more important if the other guy is bigger like a car that they see you. So, having go all the way to the right, having the the hive is
vest is always very important when you're out for any of us all the way to the left. This is a headlamp with a light both in front and in back, I could only show one view, but it has both the view front and back, and and then in the middle is a white cane. And you know I threw this in here because I think when you're getting out and about whether you are in a kind of a controlled or uncontrolled space like a wild space or a or city street having the ability to find information on your own i've talked to some people who say, Oh, my wife tells me whenever there are stairs. My wife tells me whenever they are this. but but the you know I I try to remind people that the white cane is a simple light. We doesn't take much to carry it stick that can give you that information on your own.
So. you know it is one of those pieces that I often recommend. All right. So there's lots of ways to to get outside and enjoy a more terrain with a variety of mobility devices. So I have talked about before, and I always have to mention the transport wheelchair, the lightweight transport wheelchair.
The The fact is, is that it's great for caregivers. It's great for individuals who want to get just a little further I'm. I'm. A huge fan of the transport wheelchair. The the chair in the middle is an all terrain chair. I forgot what it's called now and I can't read it on the slide, but it's a super cool chair. The 2 polls coming up. Actually, how you move the chair.
So it does take somebody with upper body. strength but this will cover almost any kind of ground, and those 2 levers give people a lot a lot more leverage to to move the chair. It's very cool to to watch a video of folks going up over all this rocky terrain in this chair, and then there's also wheelchairs that are, as they say, beach ready. So kind of fat tired chairs, that are you know built to navigate on sand, and there's a variety of these beach kind of chairs, you know, and I think it's just great to think about all the equipment that's out there that can really meet the need so and then earlier. There's there's also like if you wanted to go skiing or or biking there's just there's just so many options of of equipment that are adapted to meet specific needs.
And I okay, So I I did it throw in some slide of mobility equipment, because one of the things that I also think is very cool right now is the stylish nature of equipment these days. So the the large base canes on the left there was a whole rainbow of colors. so they you know, come in a variety of colors. They're they're very packable the large base makes them stand up on their own. So there's it's just a great option the quad can can't really see it in this But the quad cane is also now coming in stylish colors.
So if that's a need there's no need to just go gray or black. You can support all kinds of designs and the The next one is a a seeded cane. So this actually collapses up those the seat, slides up the the shaft, and so it becomes a cane, and then it slides down and becomes the seat.
So it's an interesting style for somebody who has good good enough mobility just to need a little support. But they also want to sit down and then the one on the right will also collapse and become a cane. Now. it is a little odd to walk with this, because it does have the 2 points at the bottom. But it is also just a seat you can carry, maybe better.
A seat you carry than a keen but it can be used a bit like a cane. So lots of options it's not just, you know, not just your your grandfather's cane anymore. All right. Oh, and then there another support for getting out. So we we talked about some things in the beginning which are good activities to do. But there's a couple of apps i'll start with the red panic button app because this is just an app, and when you download this, it is a way to connect to somebody kind of like an emergency, on an emergency level the free version, I think, from what I could tell sends an email which does need to, does not sound like a panic way to get somebody's attention. But the paid version is, it? does I think send a text so but it's a a really easy way. With very limited level of thinking to be able to just go to that panic button app and connect to somebody.
This other app that I found there's, a woman locally in Kansas City, who developed this one which I think is very interesting, and it's called Smart Steps Mobile, and it it is for decision making and it gives you some options on the front with things like i'm lost my ride is late. I've lost something and a couple of other a couple of other options. So this is actually designed for college students, who maybe have limited decision making when understanding. So I think this actually works for a broad audience and if you're supporting somebody who wants to get out who wants to get out into the community, and maybe wants to go on their own. But some, but you know their support team might be a little hesitant. An app like this might actually bring people a little more confidence that the individual could could get out and do this on their own. So I don't know.
I think that it there's something very worthwhile about this app called Smart Steps Mobile, and it is, It is new information to me, so I am. I am sharing it with you after just having you know done as much research as I can, but I haven't used a bit. We just found out about it. all right and I think that's all I have today.
Yeah, I did there's one more thing I wanted to show when I when I was talking about the low vision I just wanted to kind of throw this out there. There's a we walk cane that that is a cane that's designed for blind individuals or or low vision individuals that has a companion, app and will tell you your navigation turn by turn so it's a it's a cool device that tells you directions by clock So you go to 10 o'clock and go 80 feet, and then, when after you get to that 80 feet, it will tell you turn to 3 o'clock, and and go 40 feet. but it will use your navigation app but direct you with clock directions, and there's there's all kinds of equipment out there. All kinds of fun stuff. But now we are on to our open door workshops for 2,022, and Angelina is going to tell us about those great so I'm gonna go ahead and send out a closing poll to everyone as i'm wrapping up here. we have the I'm. so sorry we have the upcoming model workshops, and what their topics are going to be and you'll see on there we also have a note for later in the year. but that November and December are gonna be moved around just a couple days, so that we can accommodate for the holidays.

Okay, I don't see any questions. what was the name Oh, so I was talking about. Janet asked what was the name of the resource that gives clock directions.
