Featured Webinar Program: 

Working Smart Together;
Helping clients living with various brain-based conditions

Presented by: Leslie Hatch Gail, M. Ed

Working with clients living with various brain-based conditions means considering extra layers of communication. And understanding how to reveal and pull back those layers to better help these clients is key to improving their organization and productivity for the long run.

We work with clients living with brain-based conditions in the context of their environment and circumstances. Often we anticipate coming in to provide our services and empowering them. However Leslie would like us to consider shifting your thinking. Rather than you empowering your clients, Leslie will explain how a shift to a more asset-based approach that helps clients tap into their own power from within.

Key Takeaways from this program:

  • Techniques for tapping into client strengths
  • Building upon client strengths to address organizing and productivity issues
  • Adjust and revise our approach to clients living with brain-based conditions

She jumped right in and started volunteering for NAPO Chicago’s marketing committee, then served as the Professional Development Director for four years. From there she moved on to the NAPO National Marketing Committee and currently serves as NAPO’s Marketing Committee Chair.
